The health economics research theme within CERVIVA has a particular focus on cost-effectiveness analysis (CEA). CEA involves estimating the all the costs and health benefits that flow from a healthcare intervention and choosing the programme that maximises health gain for a given health budget. Applying CEA to screening for early stage disease involves comparing alternative testing technologies, considering how often to screen people and at what ages to start and stop screening. The goal this research is to find the most effective cervical screening strategy possible with acceptable resource demands on the Irish health system.
