Impacto económico de la malaria en el Perú
Malaria is one of the more important public health problems in Peru and the world. Besides the human costs, that are the most important, malaria has an economic impact. This paper estimates the cost that malaria has for the peruvian society in 119.5 million of Soles in 1998, equal to 1.5 per cent of the total health expenditures. Because these costs are principally borned by the families, that try to recuperate them by additional work efforts, they are not well perceived by the society and the disease is subvalorated in public policies.
