dc.description.abstract This study estimated the indirect costs (productivity loss) caused by mortality and morbidity of cervical and breast cancers in Spain. We used two alternative methods: (a) the traditional human capital (HC) approach and (b) the friction cost (FC) method. The annual costs were €43.4 and 288.7 for cervical and breast cancer, respectively, by the HC approach and €1.1 and 11.6 mil lion by the FC approach. Cost-of-ill ness studies help to illustrate the real dimension of health problems and should be a major concern for health policies. Indirect costs are relevant information about diseases. However, the estimated indirect costs depend heavily on the approach adopted.
