Table 2 Diagnostic performance and costs (in USD) used for baseline comparison

From: To screen or not to screen: an interactive framework for comparing costs of mass malaria treatment interventions

Diagnostic accuracy
 RDT sensitivity* 0.82 to 0.96  
 RDT specificity* 0.80 to 0.90  
Healthcare provider costs (USD)  
 Cost of RDT* 0.60  
 Cost of treatment (ACT)* 2.40  
Societal costs (USD)
 Lost daily wages 21.55  
Scenario costs
 Scenario False negatives False positives
  A. No cost associated with false positive or false negative 0.00 0.00
  B. False negative equal to cost of RDT* 2.40 0.00
  C. False negative equal to cost of RDT* and potential lost wages 23.95 0.00
  D. Same as C with small offset for false positives 23.95 1.50
