Overview

This model performs a cost-effective analysis of vector control strategies, using DALYs to measure health outcomes. The model includes the evolution of insecticide resistance and immunity in the human population, to allow for long-term assessment of dengue transmission.

Question

What is most cost-effective insecticide-based vector control strategy that decreases the dengue health burden?
