OBJECTIVE To determine the cost effectiveness of several cervical cancer screening strategies utilizing HPV testing in South Africa. METHODS We developed a lifetime Markov model of the costs, quality of life, and survival associated with screening and treating cervical cancer and its precursors. Screening strategies evaluated included: 1) conventional cytology, 2) cytology followed by HPV testing for triage of equivocal cytology, 3) HPV testing, 4) HPV testing followed by cytology for triage… CONTINUE READING
