All health systems in the world are facing the lack of financial resources for meeting the health needs of people. Policymakers in the health sector use economic and political methods to solve this problem and implement appropriate strategies for prioritizing and allocating limited resources to meet unlimited health needs [1]. In this regard, it is important to conduct studies for economic evaluation of health to provide evidence to decision-makers. These comparative studies of the costs and consequences of different health technologies and strategies [2] can help policymakers to choose the most cost-effective interventions to create the greatest health outcomes. As universal health coverage (UHC) becomes one of the priorities of countries to achieve sustainable development goals, the access of all people to the needed services at a reasonable price should be considered by governments. The COVID-19 pandemic showed that only a robust health system with sufficient finance cannot guarantee people’s health in the long term, and we need to find cost-effective methods to provide health services [3].
