Abstract

Health economic analyses evaluate interventions from the stand-point of effectiveness and cost, important considerations in today's healthcare environment. Use of analytic cost-effectiveness approaches allows decision-makers to evaluate interventions in a more rational manner. With the use of sensitivity techniques, various scenarios can be evaluated, particularly as they relate to questions that have significant uncertainty. To date, there has been limited application of these methods to the area of contraception.
