    Article - En anglais

    Fulltext.

    Objectives

    The authors evaluated the cost-effectiveness of a commmunity-level HIV prevention intervention that used peer leaders to endorse risk reduction among gay men.

    Methods

    A mathematical model of HIV transmission was used to translate reported changes in sexual behavior into an estimate of the number of HIV infections averted.

    Results

    The intervention cost $17150, or about $65000 per infection averted, and was therefore cost-saving, even under very conservative modelling assumptions.

    Conclusions

    For this intervention, the cost of HIV prevention was more than offset by savings in averted future medical care costs.

    Community-level interventions to prevent HIV transmission that use ixisting social networks can be highly cost-effective.
