The impact of malaria on labour use and efficiency in the Sudan
The paper seeks to examine the economic impact of malaria in the Sudan. Using longitudinal empirical data from a farming population in the Gezira, it examines and quantifies labour losses through malaria within families, observing simultaneously the manner in which altruism or "nafeer" helps families and communities insure their members against disease and other consequences of uncertainty.
