Chapter 8. Findings

, : Chapter 8. Findings. Bulletin of the World Health Organization 48 Suppl: 89-97

This chapter presents the findings arrived at by applying the resource allocation model to tuberculosis control in the Republic of Korea. Optimum subprogrammes are obtained for the four objectives of the programme: reduction of disability, impairment, excess mortality, and economic loss. These subprogrammes are discussed in terms of the content and operational level of the technologies selected and the stratum and age of the population included. The use of resources is examined in relation to the optimality of the programme. Shadow prices are introduced to provide guidance for modifying constraints in order to render the programme more effective. The feasibility of modifying the ceilings of resources and of introducing new constraints, and the significance of such variations, are discussed. Methodological problems are identified and discussed.
