The Global Economic and Health Burden of Human Hookworm Infection

Fig 1

Impact of disability weight (DW) estimates on A) global DALYs, and B) global productivity losses across varying levels of anemia calculated using Method 1 (including cognitive impairment).

The lower end of the range is the total burden assuming a low probability of anemia, while the upper end assumed a high probability of anemia. The 2004 DW and 2010 DW represent results with the published DW estimates and +/- 10% indicates adjustment to these values.
