Cost-effectiveness of population salt reduction interventions in Cameroon

Published in BMJ Open on 24th November 2020, Aminde, Cobiac, and Veerman conducted a cost-effectiveness analysis of three population salt reduction interventions to prevent cardiovascular disease (CVD) in Cameroon. Using a multicohort multistate life table Markov model, the study estimated that over 10,000, 79,000 and 84,000 CVD deaths could be avertedfrom mass media, school education programme and salt substitute interventions respectively. The study also found high probabilities of cost-savings for all three interventions, concluding all strategies were highly cost-effective for Cameroon.
