  1. Maximal health gains and incremental costs per QALY for a range of different budgets. Net present values over a lifetime horizon. Discount rates 4% for costs and 1.5% for QALYs, price level 2007. Interventions added as compared to the set chosen for the budget in the previous row are indicated by +, interventions removed are indicated by -.
  2. i A list of the interventions and their abbreviations is given in Table 2.
  3. ii That is, more money was spent on the same set of interventions as in the previous row
