The time horizon of the analysis is one year under a conservative assumption that children would require a new set of school uniforms each year. The outcome of the cost-effectiveness analysis was expressed as a ratio of incremental costs to incremental health outcomesthat is, incremental cost-effectiveness ratios (ICERs). Incremental health outcomes were estimated in terms of DF cases (non-hospitalized and hospitalized), DHF cases, and disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) averted. DALYs combine years of life lost because of premature death and years of life lived with disability in a single health outcome measure. ICERs were calculated as the cost per DALY averted. We reported ICERs when an alternative strategy was not ruled out of the decision analysis by simple dominance (i.e.

In Brazil, initial results regarding the release of the modified mosquitoes appear positive. In the Itaberaba neighborhood in the Bahia region of Brazil, millions of the genetically modified male mosquitoes were brought in. An impressive 84% of the mosquito larvae now carry the gene. The Brazilian government has approved the release of the altered mosquitoes in five more neighborhoods. Additionally, in the Cayman Islands and Malaysia the modified mosquitoes have been released without any unfavorable outcomes .
