WTP thresholds used to assess cost-effectiveness

  • The table shows different threshold for cost-effectiveness, used in figures 2 and 3.

  • *This estimate is drawn from recently published analysis,21 for which only country-level estimates are available. The study used different approaches to propose three different WTP thresholds for India; for simplicity in the present study, we adopt the most stringent of these.

  • WTP, willingness-to-pay.
