After a 1989-90 measles epidemic in Mexico, CIET investigated the costs incurred by the communities and the health services as a consequence of the outbreak; and showed that it is cheaper to vaccinate against measles than to control an epidemic.

In Liberia a measles campaign during a 1993 truce in that country's civil war was evaluated.
 
In Pakistan, measles vaccination has been the primary focus of a cluster randomised trial concerning household cost-benefit decisions on childhood immunisation. Five articles describing the results of this trial have bee published in BMC International Health and Human Rights and can be found at http://www.biomedcentral.com/1472-698X/9?issue=S1.
