  1. Fulltext. The cost-effectiveness of HIV prevention targeting : How much more bang for the buck ?

    Article - En anglais

    Fulltext.

    Background

    Although the targeting of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) prevention to high-risk populations has been widely discussed, its benefits have not been quantified.

    Methods

    This analysis of cost-effectiveness combines an HIV epidemic model, target population scenarios, and data on the cost and impact of prevention.

    Results

    The number of HIV infections averted in 5 years with $1 million in annual prevention spending ranges from 164 in high-risk populations to 0.4 in very-low-risk populations.

    Fortyfold to two-hundredfold differences in prevention costs could equalize HIV infections averted.

    Conclusions

    Targeting appears to provide substantial benefit and should be considered in allocation decisions about prevention.
