Cost-effectiveness of cataract surgery in a public health eye care programme in Nepal

Reference: Marseille E. (1996). Cost-effectiveness of cataract surgery in a public health eye care programme in Nepal, WHO. URL-http://apps.who.int/iris/ Programme planners and policy-makers are turning increasingly to cost-effectiveness assessments to guide the allocation of health care resources. The World Bank, for example, has systematically applied cost-effectiveness criteria to establish priorities for health spending in low-income countries. In 1993 it included cataract surgery in the "most highly cost-
effective" category of health interventions (1, 2). This article presents a re-assessment of the cost- effectiveness of cataract surgery using cost and services data from the Lumbini Zonal Eye Care Programme in Nepal. The findings suggest that cataract surgery may be even more cost-effective than previously believed (cataract surgery was found to have a cost per "disability-adjusted life year" (DALY) of US$ 5.06). This is in the same range
of cost-effectiveness as other well-accepted public health interventions.
