 This week we highlighted findings from recently published cost-effectiveness studies:


  • Cost-effectiveness of behavioral counseling for cardiovascular risk factors:Recommendations put forth by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) for behavioral counseling for adults with cardiovascular risk factors was found to be cost-effective, but varied greatly among subgroups (i.e. those with hypertension, impaired fasting glucose, or obesity). (24)
  • Cost-effectiveness of antiretroviral treatment (ART) same-day treatment:Same-day antiretroviral treatment (ART) initiation for HIV patients was found to be more effective, but slightly more expensive than standard initiation in a primary health clinic in South Africa. (26)
  • Variations in cost-effectiveness estimates about the effectiveness of PCSK-9 inhibitors: The primary driver behind various cost-effectiveness estimates for PCSK-9 inhibitors is due to assumptions about the risk of cardiovascular disease events. (47)
