Cost-effectiveness of uncorrected refractive error

This project examines the costs, health effects and cost-effectiveness of passive and active screening for untreated refractive error, in combination with the provision of glasses. The project is a desk top analysis on the basis of secondary data, and is carried out for 14 world regions using the structured WHO templates on cost-effectiveness analysis.

The study is funded by WHO, and is closed in 2007.
