Conclusions

The economic losses associated with aflatoxin contamination are difficult to assess in a consistent and uniform way. The lack of information on the health costs and other economic losses from mycotoxin induced human illness is partly due to the difficulty of establishing cause-and-effect relationships between aflatoxins and the chronic diseases they are suspected of causing. For Sub-Saharan Africa, capacity building for economic impact assessment is urgent for both impact assessment and trade analysis. Baseline data do not exist in most of the countries, so comparisons often have no basis for normalization. Research for development efforts should focus on the potential for improved health, enhanced trade, increased income and enhanced welfare of farmers and consumers.
