Project Summary

This cost-utility analysis was conducted as the result of a request from the Subcommittee for Development of the NLEM to provide information on the long-term effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of the screening of osteoporosis and its medical management. This information was then used to inform the Subcommittee regarding the selection of osteoporosis drugs for public reimbursement nationwide. It is expected that the findings from this study will be useful to decision-makers in other developing countries, where health resources and infrastructure are constraints and the screening and treatment of osteoporosis are underutilised.
