Objective The aim of this study was to investigate the cost-effectiveness of Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) screening and eradication treatment in an asymptomatic population in China and to explore the most cost-effective screening protocol for H. pylori. Method We used TreeAge 2019 to construct Markov models to assess the direct healthcare costs and quality-adjusted life years (QALYs) and the cost per year of life saved (YoLS) of three therapies, i.e., annual, triennial and five-yearly H. pylori screening. Excess probabilities were derived from published high quality studies and Meta-analyses, and costs and utilities were derived from the Chinese Yearbook of Health Care Statistics and published studies. Incremental cost-effectiveness ratios (ICERs) were used to describe the results. The willingness-to-pay threshold was set at China’s Gross National Product per capita. Result In the asymptomatic population, the ICER per QALYs gained was US$1238.47 and US$1163.71 for every three and five years of screening compared to the annual screening group; the ICER per YoLS gained was US$3067.91 and US$1602.78, respectively. Conclusion Screening for H. pylori in asymptomatic populations in China and eradicating treatment for those who test positive is cost-effective. Increasing screening participation in asymptomatic populations is more effective than increasing the frequency of screening. From a national payer perspective, it is cost-effective to screen the general asymptomatic population in China for H. pylori and to eradicate those who test positive. Individuals need to choose a screening programme that they can afford according to their financial situation.
