Please review the articles and provide substantial answers to the questions below. Please include at least four primary, peer reviewed articles as references.

1. Critique the two articles' techniques in comparison with the recommendations from the panel on cost-effectiveness in health and medicine.

2. Suggest what policy recommendations you would make based on the findings in the two articles. Discuss the economic or other reasons for the policy recommendations.

3. Suggest what cost-effectiveness or other questions about the types of screening might still need to be answered in order to formulate a more rational policy.

I need a substantial amount of information so please include an abstract, Literature Review, Additional sections (for example, Regulations, Legislation, Policies, or Current Interventions). Maybe include information on the current state of regulation for this problem, any relevant policies, and community health interventions that have been done or are being done for this problem.
