An economic evaluation of c. echinococcosis and leishmaniasis in a hypo-endemic area was approached with systems-thinking and more.

Highlights

  • An economic evaluation of c. echinococcosis and leishmaniasis in a hypo-endemic area was approached with systems-thinking.
  • The research team and an external network of experts integrated the necessary interdisciplinary knowledge.
  • Two epidemiologic-economic models were designed to identify relevant cost categories and data sources.
  • This experience shows that One Health methods can be applied with limited resources and skills already available.
