KCE Reports 306 (2019) A healthy lifestyle remains the most effective way of avoiding cardiovascular diseases and their consequences. Yet since 2002, the annual number of people who use cholesterol-lowering drugs from the statin family increased from 400,000 to 1,500,000. Currently, 25% of the population aged 40 and above take these drugs. Despite decreases in price due to the fact that all statins now exist in generic form, their total cost still stands at 160 million euros annually.
KCE Reports 308 (2019) The vaccine for the human papilloma virus (HPV) which causes cervical cancer was introduced about ten years ago in Belgium, but only girls benefit from it. However, it is now established that this same virus is also involved in other cancers, including throat cancer. The recommendations have thus been reviewed and here, as in most western countries, it is now recommended to vaccinate boys too.
