Estimating the Costs of Cervical Cancer Screening in High-Burden Sub-Saharan African Countries
This article, published in the International Journal of Gynecology & Obstetrics, reports on a study that aimed to estimate the capital investment and recurrent costs of national cervical cancer screening and precancer treatment programs in 23 high-incidence countries in sub-Saharan Africa in order to provide estimates of the investment required to tackle the burden of cervical cancer in the region. The authors concluded that it would cost less than US$10 per woman screened to significantly decrease the cervical cancer deaths that will occur in sub-Saharan Africa over the next 10 years.
