Description du projet ou contexte

Cervical cancer is one of the most common preventable forms of cancer, but it is the fourth most common cancer among women globally and the leading cause of death among HIV-infected women.[1],[2],[3] An estimated 604,127 new cases of cervical cancer were diagnosed worldwide and 341,831 women died from the disease in 2020. An overwhelming majority (90%) of these cervical cancer deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), which often have poor health infrastructure.[4] Nearly all cases of cervical cancer (99%) are related to infection with high-risk human papillomavirus (HPV), an extremely common virus transmitted through sexual contact.[5],[6]  

To address this situation, the World Health Organization (WHO) has launched a strategy to accelerate the elimination of cervical cancer worldwide. This strategy aims to ensure that, by 2030, 90% of girls are vaccinated against HPV, 90% of adult women have access to screening services with a highly effective test, and 70% of women with cancer or precancerous lesions receive the treatment they need.

WHO estimates that a total of USD 10.5 billion is required to finance cervical cancer eradication in low- and low-to-middle-income countries by 2030, where a large portion of this amount (equivalent to USD 1.8 per capita) should be frontloaded to rapidly establish and scale up services; 6.2 USD of this figure is needed for vaccination programs; 2.1 USD for facility utilization; 1.3 USD for consumables, 0.5 USD for human resources and 0.4 USD for equipment; by 2019 TogetHER for Health, reported that only one-seventh of this amount was invested in these countries[7].

In this context, the SUCCESS (Scale up cervical cancer elimination with secondary prevention strategy) project is supporting four countries (Guatemala, Burkina Faso, Côte d'Ivoire and the Philippines) to expand their screening programs with an emphasis on HPV DNA testing and ablative treatment of precancerous cervical lesions as part of their interventions, the project plans to estimate the costs of implementing cervical cancer prevention interventions over a 5-year period in each of the implementing countries and involves an exercise to estimate the costs of integrating secondary prevention (screening) and tertiary prevention (early treatment of precancerous lesions) into the continuum of care through services  integrated into health facilities; this also includes a comparative analysis of costs in different potential scenarios.

This exercise will be conducted using an adapted version of the Costing Tool for Cervical Cancer Prevention and Control (C4P), developed for WHO. This tool is intended for use by LMIC program managers to plan cervical cancer control strategies and make multi-year cost projections. It uses a bottom-up, input-based approach (i.e., unit cost X quantity of good or service). The C4P-SUCCESS tool will reflect the country's screening and treatment algorithm.

These costs will include two broad categories:

  • Provision of services (e.g., personnel salaries, equipment, supplies, laboratory fees), and
  • Program support activities (e.g., training, IEC development and deployment, supervision, M&E).
