RTS, S/AS01 (Mosquirix™) is a recombinant protein-based malaria vaccine invaluable for the prevention and management of the illness. Nevertheless, research carried out to this point on the willingness to pay (WTP) malaria vaccine have been insufficient to tell policy-makers.
Strategies: A community-based cross-sectional examine was performed to evaluate the WTP for childhood malaria vaccine and related components amongst caregivers of under-five kids from February to April 2019 in West Dembia district. A multistage stratified systematic sampling method was used, and the contingent valuation technique was used to estimate caregivers’ willingness to pay for the vaccine. AOR with 95% CI and fewer than 0.05 p-values had been used to declare components related to WTP.
Outcomes: General, 60.6% (95% CI: 56.60, 64.40%) of caregivers of under-five kids had been WTP for the childhood malaria vaccine at a worth of US$ 23.11 per full doses. City residence (AOR=1.78, 95% CI: 1.04, 3.04), academic standing (AOR=3.27; 95% CI: 1.07, 9.94) and vaccination expertise for youngsters (AOR= 2.12; 95% CI: 1.29, 3.48) had been positively related to the WTP. WTP for the vaccine was greater amongst wealthy households (AOR=3.15; 95% CI: 1.90, 5.22), caregivers who had the earlier historical past of malaria assault (AOR=2.62; 95% CI: 1.68, 4.08), households with fewer members (AOR=1.59; 95% CI: 1.06, 2.40), and households extra educated about malaria prevention and management (AOR=3.56; 95% CI: 1.83, 6.93) in contrast with their counterparts.
Conclusion: Nearly all of the individuals had been WTP for the childhood malaria vaccine. A major rise in willingness to buy was noticed at worth under the profile worth. Thus, it’s of nice worth to policy-makers to grasp the worth sensitivity earlier than setting the worth of the vaccine.
