The Behavioural Economics of Exercise Habits

Jeremy Goldhaber-Fiebert, Alan M. Garber
VoxEU, 2011 February 22, 2011

Obesity – and its related illnesses – endangers the lives of millions across the world. While healthier, more physically active lifestyles can mitigate this, the question remains of how policymakers can get people to switch from being couch potatoes to keen runner beans. This column presents new evidence suggesting that for many even a nudge may suffice.

Diabetes Mellitus and Tuberculosis in Countries with High Tuberculosis Burdens: Individual Risks and Social Determinants

Jeremy Goldhaber-Fiebert, Christie Y Jeon, Ted Cohen, Megan B Murray
International Journal of Epidemiology, 2011 January 20, 2011
Background A growing body of evidence supports the role of type 2 diabetes as an individual-level risk factor for tuberculosis (TB), though evidence from developing countries with the highest TB burdens is lacking. In developing countries, TB is most common among the poor, in whom diabetes may be less common. We assessed the relationship between individual-level risk, social determinants and population health in these settings.

Empirically Evaluating Decision-Analytic Models

Jeremy Goldhaber-Fiebert, Stout NK, Goldie SJ
Value Health, 2010 March 1, 2010

Objectives: Model-based cost-effectiveness analyses support decision-making. To augment model credibility, evaluation via comparison to independent, empirical studies is recommended. Methods: We developed a structured reporting format for model evaluation and conducted a structured literature review to characterize current model evaluation recommendations and practices. As an illustration, we applied the reporting format to evaluate a microsimulation of human papillomavirus and cervical cancer.

Program spending to increase adherence: South african cervical cancer screening.

Jeremy Goldhaber-Fiebert, Denny, L. A., De Souza, M., Kuhn, L., Goldie, S. J.
PLoS ONE, 2009 December 31, 2009

Abstract 

Background

Adherence is crucial for public health program effectiveness, though the benefits of increasing adherence must ultimately be weighed against the associated costs. We sought to determine the relationship between investment in community health worker (CHW) home visits and increased attendance at cervical cancer screening appointments in Cape Town, South Africa.

Inpatient treatment of diabetic patients in Asia: evidence from India, China, Thailand and Malaysia

Jeremy Goldhaber-Fiebert, Ratanawijitrasin S, Vidyasagar S, Wang XY, Aljunid S Aljunid S, Shah N Shah N, Wang Z, Hirunrassamee S, Bairy KL, Wang J, Saperi S, Nur AM, Karen Eggleston
Diabetic Medicine, 2009 October 1, 2009

Aims The prevalence of Type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) has grown rapidly, but little is known about the drivers of inpatient spending in low- and middle-income countries. This study aims to compare the clinical presentation and expenditure on hospital admission for inpatients with a primary diagnosis of Type 2 DM in India, China, Thailand and Malaysia.

Methods We analysed data on adult, Type 2 DM patients admitted between 2005 and 2008 to five tertiary hospitals in the four countries, reporting expenditures relative to income per capita in 2007.

Cost-effectiveness of cervical cancer screening with human papillomavirus DNA testing and HPV-16,18 vaccination

Jeremy Goldhaber-Fiebert, Stout NK, Salomon JA, Kuntz KM, Goldie SJ
Journal of the National Cancer Institute, 2008 March 5, 2008

BACKGROUND: The availability of human papillomavirus (HPV) DNA testing and vaccination against HPV types 16 and 18 (HPV-16,18) motivates questions about the cost-effectiveness of cervical cancer prevention in the United States for unvaccinated older women and for girls eligible for vaccination. METHODS: An empirically calibrated model was used to assess the quality-adjusted life years (QALYs), lifetime costs, and incremental cost-effectiveness ratios (2004 US dollars per QALY) of screening, vaccination of preadolescent girls, and vaccination combined with screening.

Modeling human papillomavirus and cervical cancer in the United States for analyses of screening and vaccination

Jeremy Goldhaber-Fiebert, Stout NK, Ortehndahl J, Kuntz KM, Goldie SJ, Salomon JA
Population Health Metrics, 2007 October 29, 2007

BACKGROUND: To provide quantitative insight into current U.S. policy choices for cervical cancer prevention, we developed a model of human papillomavirus (HPV) and cervical cancer, explicitly incorporating uncertainty about the natural history of disease. METHODS: We developed a stochastic microsimulation of cervical cancer that distinguishes different HPV types by their incidence, clearance, persistence, and progression. Input parameter sets were sampled randomly from uniform distributions, and simulations undertaken with each set.

Cost-effectiveness of HPV 16, 18 Vaccination in Brazil

Goldie SJ, Kim JJ, Kobus K, Jeremy Goldhaber-Fiebert, Salomon J, O'Shea MK, Xavier Bosch F, de Sanjose S, Franco EL
Vaccine, 2007 June 15, 2007

We use an empirically calibrated model to estimate the cost-effectiveness of cervical cancer prevention in Brazil, a country with a high cervical cancer burden. Assuming 70% coverage, HPV 16, 18 vaccination of adolescent girls is expected to reduce the lifetime risk of cancer by approximately 42.7% (range, 33.2-53.5%); screening three times per lifetime is expected to reduce risk by 21.9-30.7% depending on the screening test, and a combined approach of vaccination and screening is expected to reduce cancer risk by a mean of 60.8% (range, 52.8-70.1%).

Public health policy for cervical cancer prevention: the role of decision science, economic evaluation, and mathematical modeling

Goldie SJ, Jeremy Goldhaber-Fiebert, Garnett GP
Vaccine, 2006 August 21, 2006

Several factors are changing the landscape of cervical cancer control, including a better understanding of the natural history of human papillomavirus (HPV), reliable assays for detecting high-risk HPV infections, and a soon to be available HPV-16/18 vaccine. There are important differences in the relevant policy questions for different settings.

Estimating the cost of cervical cancer screening in five developing countries

Jeremy Goldhaber-Fiebert, Goldie SJ
Cost Effectiveness and Resource Allocation, 2006 August 3, 2006

BACKGROUND: Cost-effectiveness analyses (CEAs) can provide useful information to policymakers concerned with the broad allocation of resources as well as to local decision makers choosing between different options for reducing the burden from a single disease. For the latter, it is important to use country-specific data when possible and to represent cost differences between countries that might make one strategy more or less attractive than another strategy locally.

Cost-effectiveness of cervical-cancer screening in five developing countries.

Goldie SJ, Gaffkin L, Jeremy Goldhaber-Fiebert, Gorillo-Tobar A, Levin C, Mahe C, Wright TC, Alliance for Cervical Cancer Prevention Cost Working Group
New England Journal of Medicine, 2005 November 17, 2005

BACKGROUND: Cervical-cancer screening strategies that involve the use of conventional cytology and require multiple visits have been impractical in developing countries. METHODS: We used computer-based models to assess the cost-effectiveness of a variety of cervical-cancer screening strategies in India, Kenya, Peru, South Africa, and Thailand. Primary data were combined with data from the literature to estimate age-specific incidence and mortality rates for cancer and the effectiveness of screening for and treatment of precancerous lesions.

The costs of reducing loss to follow-up in South African cervical cancer screening.

Jeremy Goldhaber-Fiebert, Denny LE, De Souza M, Wright TC Jr, Kuhn L, Goldie SJ
Cost Effective Resource Allocation, 2005 November 15, 2005

BACKGROUND: This study was designed to quantify the resources used in reestablishing contact with women who missed their scheduled cervical cancer screening visits and to assess the success of this effort in reducing loss to follow-up in a developing country setting. METHODS: Women were enrolled in this Cape Town, South Africa-based screening study between 2000 and 2003, and all had scheduled follow-up visits in 2003. Community health worker (CHW) time, vehicle use, maintenance, and depreciation were estimated from weekly logs and cost accounting systems.
