Podcast 62: A conversation with Jane Kim about cost-effectiveness of vaccinating women with HPV vaccine after age 30.

(1 votes, average: 2.00 out of 5)

The FDA seems set to announce a decision about vaccinating women past age 25 for HPV. A paper in the Annals of Internal Medicine this week indicates that such a strategy wouldn’t be cost-effective.

Don’t be put off by “cost-effectiveness” or by the fact that we actually discuss “QALY”s. It’s all good. We’ve got Harvard School of Public Health’s Jane Kim to guide your interviewer through the QALY thicket, and she’s a great guide.
