GUTIERREZ-DELGADO, Cristina et al. Estimating the indirect costs associated with the expected number of cancer cases in Mexico by 2020. Salud pública Méx [online]. 2016, vol.58, n.2, pp.228-236. ISSN 0036-3634.

Objective:

To estimate the indirect costs generated by adults with cancer in Mexico from 2002-2020.

Materials and methods:

Using information from national sources and the national cancer incidence from GLOBOCAN, we estimated income lost due to premature death (ILPD), short-term benefits (STBs), disability pensions (DPs), and opportunity costs for the carer (OCCs) generated by patients with cancer. Amounts were reported in Mexican pesos.

Results:

We estimated 23 359 deaths and 216 679 new cases of cancer by 2020, which would be associated with a total indirect cost of 20.15 billion Mexican pesos. Men are expected to generate 54.9% of these costs. ILPD is expected to comprise the highest percentage of the cost (60%), followed by OCCs (22%), STBs (17%) and DPs (1%).

Conclusions:

From an economic perspective, the results emphasize the need to strengthen preventive interventions and early detection of cancer among adults to reduce its effect on the productivity of Mexico.
