Total potential DALYs averted over a lifetime, and associated economic value, given successful prevention or treatment of all cases of neonatal sepsis in sub-Saharan Africa over 1 year in 2014.

 Parameter Value Total DALYs 5.29–8.73 million Economic burden E=1.5 $9.93–$16.40 billion E=1 $58.02–$95.81 billion E=0.55 $284.12–$469.15 billion
• Value ranges reflect the ranges of reported parameter values used from the literature. The economic burden is calculated using the value of a statistical life methodology under three different assumptions of income elasticity (E=1.5, E=1, E=0.55)
