Evaluating Human Papillomavirus Vaccination Programs
Figure 3. . Effect of changing frequency with which vaccinated women receive a Pap test. The diamonds represent Pap testing annually, every 2 years (base case), every 3 years, and every 4 years. The x-axis represents the lifetime expected cost of the vaccination strategy; the y-axis is the quality-adjusted life expectancy in years. The incremental cost-effectiveness of increasing the frequency of Pap testing for vaccinated women is indicated numerically above the cost-effectiveness frontier. QALY, quality-adjusted life-year.
