CDC health economists like Dr. Donatus Ekwueme estimate the burden of disease and the effectiveness of prevention measures. The need for health economists at CDC has grown in tandem with the cost of health care. As costs have grown, so has the interest in prevention, and economic analyses that can help justify prevention programs.

In the Division of Cancer Prevention and Control's Epidemiology and Applied Research Branch, Dr. Ekwueme studies the economic ramifications of cancer screening programs. Much of his attention now is focused on estimating the economics of the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program, a federally funded cancer screening program that provides support and assistance to uninsured and underserved low-income women 18–64 years for cervical screening, and 40–64 years for breast screening and diagnostic services.

The most recent articles Dr. Ekwueme has first-authored include—
