Potential Health Impact and Cost-Effectiveness of Bivalent Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Vaccination in Afghanistan

This article, published in Vaccine, reports the results of a modelling study that estimated the potential health impact and cost-effectiveness of human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination in Afghanistan to help inform national decision-making. The results indicate that in Afghanistan, HPV vaccine introduction is likely cost-effective compared to no vaccination. In all scenario explored, including a catch-up campaign with the introduction of routine HPV immunization was more cost-effective than routine immunization alone. In addition to reducing burden on the health system, preventing downstream disease would reduce the financial and economic shocks imposed on women and their families.
