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.

Total DALYs5.29–8.73 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)

  • DALY, daily-adjusted life year.
