Figure 3

Incremental cost estimations in four non-screening scenarios compared to screening of girls only. Incremental costs increase from left to right looking at the top of the curves. Incremental cost was lowest (cost saving) in the 70% treatment rate of Lee et al (red), followed by non-screening Norway (purple), the 80% treatment rate of Lee et. al non screening scenario (blue), and the 90% treatment rate of Lee et al. non-screening scenario (green) compared to screening girls only. The areas under the curves to the right of zero equals the probabilities of incremental costs >0 which are considerably higher when comparing non-screening scenarios to screening of girls only than when comparing non-screening scenarios to screening of both boys and girls (Figure 2).
