PATH's Cervical Cancer Prevention Action Planner

Impact model references

Each of the three impact models (Brazil, India, and Vietnam) are adapted from the published computer modeling exercises cited below. The authors of these papers selected different screening strategies to model, and the three models cited in the Action Planner are limited to those pre-selected options. For this reason, the India impact model compares visual inspection with acetic acid (VIA) with HPV DNA testing, while the Brazil and Vietnam models compare cytology (Pap) with HPV DNA testing and do not include VIA.

The journal articles go into much more detail than could be included in these simple impact models. We urge interested readers to access the original articles, along with others that have been published since.

Brazil

The Brazil impact model is adapted from a paper estimating the cost-effectiveness of cervical cancer prevention in Brazil (Goldie 2007). The impact results were adapted from Table 3, page 6263.

Due to copyright concerns we are unable to provide the full paper, but it is available online. The citation is:

Goldie SJ, Kim JJ, Kolbus K, et al. Cost-effectiveness of HPV 16, 18 vaccination in Brazil. Vaccine. 2007; 25:6257–6270.

India

The India impact model is adapted from a paper estimating the cost-effectiveness of cervical cancer prevention in India (Diaz 2008). The impact results were adapted from Table 2, page 235.

Due to copyright concerns we are unable to provide the full paper, but it is available online. The citation is:

Diaz M, Kim JJ, Albero G, et al. Health and economic impact of HPV 16 and 18 vaccination and cervical cancer screening in India. British Journal of Cancer. 2008;99:230–238.

Vietnam

The Vietnam impact model is adapted from a paper estimating the cost-effectiveness of cervical cancer prevention in Vietnam (Kim 2008). The impact results were adapted from Table 3.

Due to copyright concerns we are not able to provide the full paper, though it can be accessed online. The citation is:

Kim JJ, Kobus KE, Diaz M, O'Shea M, Van Minh H, Goldie SJ. Exploring the cost-effectiveness of HPV vaccination in Vietnam: Insights for evidence-based cervical cancer prevention policy. Vaccine. 2008;26(32):4015–24.
