Cost-effectiveness assessment of european influenza human pandemic alert and response strategies

The outcome of the FLURESP project provided an extensive assessment of human flu pandemic response strategies, which lead to guidelines and recommendations for EU Member States presenting and discussing most cost-effective response strategies for each pandemic scenario.

  • The first operational phase was dedicated to the description of human pandemic scenarios. After an extensive literature review, the FLURESP consortium created a specific expert panel, which defined possible human flu pandemic scenarios in Europe. 
  • The second operational phase of the project focused on response strategies at both national and European levels. 
  • The third phase defined standardized criteria for each response strategy, including epidemiological and socio-economical impact, and multi-criteria analyses. 
  • The fourth phase performed cost-effectiveness analyses on the response strategies in four pilot European countries. 
  • The fifth phase proposed guidelines and recommendations for policy decision makers, based on ranking tables of performance, costs and cost-effectiveness ratios.
