Table 1 Fixed and variable costs, by Arm and clinic type

From: An integrated health delivery platform, targeting soil-transmitted helminths (STH) and canine mediated human rabies, results in cost savings and increased breadth of treatment for STH in remote communities in Tanzania

Arm Arm A Arm B Arm C
Clinic MDA MDRV Both MDA MDRV
Fixed Costs 3640 8000 11,640 3900 8584
Variable Costs 169 484 653 115 434
Total costs 3808 8484 12,292 4015 9018
  1. “Fixed costs” include i) event-level fixed costs not attributable to clinics, which were allocated equally across all events, and ii) event-level fixed costs attributable to either clinic type (MDA or MDRV), which were attributed equally across all rabies or deworming events, respectively. Because there were two clinics for each Arm A event, the event-level fixed costs not attributable to clinics were allocated equally across both clinics in Arm A and were therefore half that allocated to Arm B or C. Variable costs per clinic were dose-specific costs multiplied by the number of doses delivered. Costs in 2016 US dollars
