There is an increasing number of attempts to provide screening test or other interventions to prevent individuals from having disease. For the success of screening programs, appropriate screening tests should be provided to the right people, at the right time and at the desirable rate. Therefore, conducting a disease model and economic evaluation would help decision-makers and stakeholders to assess the surrounding factors and ensure the successfulness of the program prior to an implementation in the real setting. Because the evaluation of screening tests is particularly specific, this chapter aims to conclude that the needed information and examples must be made clearer.
