Abstract

Recognizing the increasing concern about the potential health effects of genetically modified foods, this research provides a framework for economic value of monitoring genetically modified food for their potential long-term human health effects. This is with the view of helping policy makers improve resource allocation decisions in the face of competing public health initiatives. Using a hypothetical population exposed to a hypothetical product, we estimate the health value associated with a post-market surveillance initiative. The analysis indicate that the principal challenge confronting decision makers in the implementation of post-market surveillance initiatives is prioritising products for monitoring given the uncertainty associated with outcomes and effects.
