It was highlighted that the original article [1] contained a formatting error in the equations. These were all erroneously captured as Eq. 1. This Correction article shows the correct Eqs. 14. The original article has been updated.

Equation 1 (infant’s exposure)

$${C}_{s,i}=\frac{I_{a,m}\ast {t}_{1/2,m}\ast {f}_m\ast FE}{\mathit{\ln}2\ast B{F}_i},$$
(1)

Equation 2 (probability of not getting pregnant)

$$P(a)={\left(1-0.65\left(1+\frac{-0.39c}{c+10 pg/g}\right)\right)}^{2a}$$
(2)

Equation 3 (disease burden)

$$Bo{D}_i= BoD\ast PA{F}_i= BoD\ast {f}_i\frac{R{R}_i-1}{f_i\left(R{R}_i-1\right)+1}, or$$
(3)
$$Bo{D}_i={N}_i\ast L\ast Dw=P\ast {f}_i\ast U{R}_i\ast {E}_i\ast L\ast Dw$$
(4)

Equation 4 (value of information)

$$VOI=E\left( ma{x}_i\left(U\left({d}_i\right)\right)\right)- ma{x}_i\left(E\left(U\left({d}_i\right)\right)\right),$$
(5)
