  1. Cost-effective syphilis screening in military recruit applicants.

    Article - En anglais

    A cost-effectiveness analysis of syphilis screening was performed.

    Strategies included no screening, universal testing at military entrance processing stations, universal testing at basic training centers, and contracting centralized screening.

    Probabilities derived from data retained on recruit applicants from 1989 through 1991 (N=1,588,143) and from the published literature were used.

    Cost estimates were derived from costs incurred by the military and costs projected from implementing new strategies.

    Sensitivity analyses were performed.

    Modifying the existing contract for human immunodeficiency virus screening to include syphilis screening would maximize the effectiveness of screening at a cost to the Department of Defense of $9.52 per additional year of service received.

    The no-screening option was significantly more cost-saving than the current method of testing.

    Syphilis is rare and treatable, and individuals with syphilis will be identified by other means in many cases.

    Syphilis screening of recruit applicants at the military entrance processing stations should cease, saving the military $2,541,000 per year.
