Abstract

The objective of the present study was to calculate the economic loss caused by the treatment of human hydatidosis. For this purpose, a cost analysis of the cases reported in the Junin region of Peru in 2013 was conducted. The total cost (direct and indirect) per patient assisted by the Ministry of Health (Ministerio de Salud–Minsa), the social security system (EsSalud), and private health care was 1,220, 3,051, and 4,090 US dollars (USD), respectively. The mean annual loss considering the number of health care services for uncomplicated cases of human hydatidosis was USD 24,542 in Minsa, USD 369,292 in EsSalud, and USD 130,566 in private health care. Overall, the rate of loss of human productivity was a small proportion. Our findings indicate that hydatidosis imposes a heavy economic burden in the Junin region of Peru.
