The current article describes the economic evaluation of interventions to control Campylobacter on chicken meat by means of a cost‐utility analysis. Apart from the methodology used, the main focus of this article is on data gaps and assumptions made, and their impact on results and conclusions. The direct intervention costs, the relative risk, the disease burden (expressed in disability‐adjusted life years (DALYs)), and the costs of illness for the various interventions are necessary inputs for… 

Campylobacter control measures in indoor broiler chicken: critical re-assessment of cost-utility and putative barriers to implementation

TLDR
An independent review of model input parameters on health and economic burden and found that the model most probably overestimated the burden of human campylobacteriosis.

Effectiveness and Efficiency of Controlling Campylobacter on Broiler Chicken Meat

TLDR
The most promising interventions in the processing plant are limiting fecal leakage during processing and separation of contaminated and noncontaminated flocks (scheduling), followed by decontamination of the contaminated flock, followed by freezing and heat treatment.

A social cost-benefit analysis of two One Health interventions to prevent toxoplasmosis

TLDR
A Social Cost-Benefit Analysis to evaluate the net value of two potential interventions to prevent Toxoplasma gondii infections in humans and found the freezing meat intervention was far more effective than the biosecurity intervention.

Assessing Interventions to Reduce the Risk of Campylobacter Prevalence in Broilers

TLDR
It is found that the reliability of negative test results, which is crucial, strongly depends on the length of time between testing and slaughter, and the impact of improved biosecurity cannot be specified into specific control measures, and therefore it is not clear what investments are needed.

Economic feasibility of Campylobacter‐reduced chicken: Do consumers have high willingness to pay?

We apply a choice experiment to estimate additional willingness to pay for Campylobacter†reduced chicken compared with normal chicken. We select Japanese consumers as an example because Japan is

A Risk Assessment Model for Campylobacter in Broiler Meat

TLDR
The model shows that to accurately assess of the effects of interventions, numbers of Campylobacter have to be explicitly incorporated in the model in addition to the prevalence of contamination, including the nonlinear effects of cross‐contamination between carcasses and their leaking feces.

The economic burden of Campylobacter-associated Guillain-Barré syndrome.

TLDR
It is concluded that up to $8.0 billion in US human illness costs are spent annually because of Campylobacter infection, and economic evaluation of the other costs associated with GBS, such as physical and psychological costs, would increase these estimates.

The costs of human Campylobacter infections and sequelae in the Netherlands: A DALY and cost-of-illness approach

TLDR
Campylobacter infections and sequelae pose an important public health problem for the Netherlands and with the help of a second order stochastic simulation model, confidence intervals (CI) for the associated disease burden and the associated costs were estimated.

Human health benefits from livestock vaccination for brucellosis: case study.

TLDR
If the costs of vaccination of livestock against brucellosis were allocated to all sectors in proportion to the benefits, the intervention might be profitable and cost effective for the agricultural and health sectors.

The study of infectious intestinal disease in England: socio-economic impact.

TLDR
The duration, severity and costs of illness linked to viruses were less than those linked to bacteria and the duration of the illness was found to be longer than previous reports have suggested.

Assessing the Costs and Benefits of Pathogen Reduction

There has been increasing concern in recent years over the human health risks posed by microbial pathogens-bacteria, parasites, fungi, and viruses-in the food supply. Each year an estimated 6 million

Campylobacter spp. in Icelandic poultry operations and human disease.

TLDR
It is suggested that public education, enhanced on-farm biological security measures, carcass freezing and other unidentified factors, such as variations in weather, contributed to the large reduction in poultry-borne campylobacteriosis.

Cross‐Contamination During Food Preparation: A Mechanistic Model Applied to Chicken‐Borne Campylobacter

TLDR
It is found that cleaning frequency of kitchen utensils and thoroughness of rinsing of raw food items after preparation has more impact on cross‐contamination than previously emphasized and it is argued that especially more behavioral data on hygiene during food preparation is needed for a comprehensive Campylobacter risk assessment.
