- •Only 32 economic evaluations (EEs) have been published over the past 15-years.
- •A wide variety of methodological approaches were shown.
- •Nearly two-thirds of EEs are full and 40% are cost-utility analyses.
- •Only nearly one-third of EEs are of high quality.
- •Need to apply European and international recommendations to ensure quality of EEs.
