Objective: This study aimed to evaluate a national vitamin D supplementation program's cost-effectiveness among Iranian adolescents to prevent cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) in adulthood.

Study design: A cost-effectiveness analytical study.

A decision tree model was adopted to evaluate the cost per quality-adjusted life-year (QALY) of monthly intake of nine pearls of 50,000 IU vitamin D for nine months to prevent CVD a one-year horizon compared to no intervention. The analysis was conducted in Iranian adolescents in first or second high school grades of 47 climatically different Iran regions.

Our analytical analysis estimated the 1090$ cost per QALY gained of the monthly intake of 50,000 IU vitamin D for nine monthsamong adolescents over a one-year horizon. Based on the incremental cost-effectiveness ratio (ICER) threshold of 1032–2666, vitamin D supplementation was cost-effective for adolescents to prevent adulthood CVD.
It means that vitamin D supplementation costs were substantially less than the costs of CVD treatments compared to the no intervention.

Based on these findings, the national program of vitamin D supplementation in adolescents would be cost effective to prevent CVD development in adulthood. From an economic perspective, vitamin D supplementation, especially in adolescents with vitamin D deficiency, would be administrated.
