Cost effectiveness and strategic planning (WHO-CHOICE)

Cost-effectiveness thresholds

Information on the threshold values used in CHOICE analyses for the relative cost-effectiveness of an intervention are available below.

Threshold values of cost-effectiveness are presented in international dollars for the year 2005. Following the recommendations of the Commission on Macroeconomics and Health, CHOICE uses gross domestic product (GDP) as a readily available indicator to derive the following three categories of cost-effectiveness: Highly cost-effective (less than GDP per capita); Cost-effective (between one and three times GDP per capita); and Not cost-effective (more than three times GDP per capita)
