Table 4 Incremental cost-effectiveness ratios of caesarean deliveries by providers' teams, district hospitals, Burkina Faso, 2006

From: A cost-effectiveness study of caesarean-section deliveries by clinical officers, general practitioners and obstetricians in Burkina Faso

Providers
(Surgical teams led by...)
Total costs of surgical team Cost per c-section, CFA Newborns CFR
(/1000 c-sections)
Obstetricians (O) 8 577 736 92 858 99
Trained doctors (D) 3 466 938 37 531 125
Clinical officers (CO) 3 222 433 34 884 198
Incremental Cost-Effectiveness Ratio (ICER) = incremental cost of performing 1000 c-sections/incremental gain of newborns' lives per 1000 c-sections    
ICER from (D) to (O) = (92.858 mi-37.531 mi)/(125-99)    2 127 962
ICER from (CO) to (O) = (92.858 mi-34.884 mi)/(198-99)    585 596
ICER from (CO) to (D) = (37.531 mi-34.884 mi)/(198-125)    36 260
