pqantimalarials: web tool for estimating under-five deaths caused by poor-quality
antimalarials in sub-Saharan Africa
This package allows users to calculate the number of
under-five child deaths caused by consumption of poor quality
antimalarials across 39 sub-Saharan nations. The package supports one
function, that starts an interactive web tool created using
the shiny R package. The web tool runs locally on the user's machine.
The web tool allows users to set input parameters (prevalence of poor
quality antimalarials, case fatality rate of children who take poor
quality antimalarials, and sample size) which are then used to perform
an uncertainty analysis following the Latin hypercube
sampling scheme. Users can download the output figures as PDFs, and the
output data as CSVs. Users can also download their input parameters
for reference. This package was designed to accompany the analysis
