Cost of illness studies on reproductive, maternal, newborn, and child health: a systematic literature review.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The term ?reproductive, maternal, newborn, and child health (RMNCH)? describes an integrated continuum of health states which is central to Millennium Development Goals 4 and 5. While the burden of mortality and morbidity associated with RMNCH is well known, knowledge is still limited about the economic burden of RMNCH. Concrete evidence of cost of illness (COI) of RMNCH may help policy makers in supporting investment in RMNCH.
