The direct and indirect costs associated with endometriosis in Australia.


This study aims to match women’s self-reported doctor diagnosis of endometriosis with Commonwealth Medical Benefits Schedule (GP, Specialist visits) and state-based Admitted Patients Collections to provide evidence on the direct economic impacts of endometriosis in Australia from 1996 to 2023. It will also examine lost/reduced work productivity of women with endometriosis in terms of hours in paid work and unemployment (indirect economic impacts).
