Human immunodeficiency virus counseling, testing, referral, and partner notification services : a cost-benefit analysis.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Atlanta, Ga) annually provides more than $100 million in funding to states, territories, and cities for the provision of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) counseling, testing, referral, and partner notification (CTRPN) services.
Given the size of this expenditure, it is important to consider the net benefits of this program activity.
We compared the economic costs and benefits of publicly funded HIV CTRPN services.
Standard methods for cost-benefit analysis were used.
A societal perspective was employed.
