Cost-effectiveness analysis is a method for evaluating the costs and health outcomes of interventions that allow the relative value of different interventions to be compared. Policymakers use cost-effectiveness analyses to assist in understanding what interventions might provide the best value for money; cost-effectiveness analyses – and their related sensitivity analyses – also provide important additional information such as clinical, epidemiologic, and/or economic benchmarks for interventions to achieve the best outcome with lowest possible cost. If an intervention is not cost-effective under current conditions, analyses can project under what conditions it might become so. (Please refer to ToR for more information on the background)
