This week we highlighted findings from recently published cost-effectiveness studies:
- Framework for geographic targeting based on cost-effectiveness applied to priority setting in malaria control: An approach using targeted geographic data to estimate intervention costs and effects is recommended for implementing malaria interventions in order to maximize available resources and work towards elimination (9)
- Review of cost-effectiveness models in breast cancer screening highlights structural and methodological approaches: A systematic review revealed that models used in cost-effectiveness analysis employed varying disease progression assumptions and imprecise utility estimates (17)
