07. Estimated Costs of the Injury Problem

| No Comments

According to the WHO,
"Little data exists of the medical costs of burns in low and middle income countries. However, the social and medical costs of burns are significant for societies and families. In the USA, the medical costs of primary health care with one inpatient with burns ranges from $3000 to $5000 a day. These expenses may account for only 23% of the total costs. The economic impact of burns also includes loss of wages and the costs relating to deformities resulting from burns, in terms of emotional trauma and loss of skills." 7
