The title of table 4 should be “Model inputs for cost effectiveness analysis of cervical cancer [not colorectal as well] control in….” In the bottom four rows of table 5 the disability weights for colorectal cancer should be: 0.08 [not 0.80] for diagnosis and treatment; 0.08 [not 0.80] for watchful waiting; 0.75 [not 0.25] for metathesis; and 0.81 [not 0.19] for terminal cancer.
