Epidemiological and Economic Aspects of Shigellosis
This article reflects the epidemiological aspects of shigellosis in Moldova as well as its economic impacts during the year 2008. Shigellosis
accounted for 4.68% of all digestive infections in 2008, and the average cost of a single shigellosis case, comprising medical and social welfare
services, was 8037 lei. The cost of medical services, which was equal to 6992 lei, was determined by the specificity and dimension of the epidemic’s
outbreak, the severity of the disease and the proportion of the affected population. Social assistance allowance (indirect costs), which was equal
to 1045 lei, was determined primarily by the age of the affected population and the duration of the temporary incapacity to work, especially for
children aged 2-6 years, who required the care of a family member during the illness.
