Abstract

Immunisation is considered one of the health technologies with greater cost effectiveness for public health worldwide, and has contributed to reducing the burden of disease associated with immuno-preventable diseases of childhood. The objective of this work is to estimate the direct costs generated by routine immunisation in children under one year of age in Ecuador in 2016. For the estimation of costs, the government's perspective as the third party payer was taken into account and the direct medical and non-medical costs associated with the routine immunisation established for the year of the study were included, using the dollar as currency in the 2016 period. It was estimated that the cost of a child under one year who completes routine immunisation in Ecuador for 2016 was 106.193USD, and that the total cost of immunisation for children under one year in Ecuador in 2016, considering a coverage rate 74.6%, would be approximately 26,476,994.497USD.

Resumen

La inmunización es considerada una de las tecnologías sanitarias con mayor costo-efectividad para la salud pública a nivel mundial, que ha permitido reducir la carga de enfermedad asociada a enfermedades inmunoprevenibles de la infancia.

El objetivo de este trabajo es estimar los costos directos generados por la inmunización de rutina en niños menores de un año en Ecuador en el año 2016.

Para la estimación de costos se tomó en cuenta la perspectiva del gobierno como tercer pagador y se incluyeron los costos directos médicos y no médicos asociados a la inmunización de rutina establecidos para el año del estudio, utilizando como moneda el dólar americano, en el periodo del 2016.

Se estimó que el costo de un niño menor de un año que completa inmunización de rutina en el Ecuador para el año 2016 es de 106,193USD, y que el costo total de inmunización para menores de un año en Ecuador en el 2016, considerando la tendencia de cobertura del 74,6%, será de aproximadamente 26.476.994,497USD.
