ABSTRACT
The article discusses research being done on the development of a cost effective strategy for cervical cancer prevention in Brazil. It references a study by S. J. Goldie et al. published in the August 2007 issue of the "Vaccine." The researchers concluded that a human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination program would be a cost effective strategy for preventing cervical cancer in Brazil. The researchers utilized an empirically calibrated simulation model of cervical carcinogenesis to evaluate HPV 16 and 18 vaccination of adolescent females.
