/Costs and disease burden

The cost and burden of cancer in the European Union 1995-2014

Jönsson B, Hofmarcher T, Lindgren P & Wilking N

There is an intense debate about the cost of cancer and the value of new treatments. However, there is limited data on the cost of cancer in the European Union (EU) and how costs relate to the burden of disease. This paper presents new estimates on the development of the cost of cancer in the EU 1995-2014, with a focus on the major cost components: total health expenditure, cancer drugs, and production loss due to premature mortality.
