  1. Modeling the impact and cost-effectiveness of HIV prevention efforts.

    Article - En anglais


    This study explores how mathematical models can be used to examine the relationship between the effectiveness and costs of different prevention strategies.

    The analysis, based on a model designed to simulate the spread of HIV in sub-Saharan Africa, illustrates how the impact and relative cost-effectiveness of a prevention programme are sensitive to a number of factors including the rate of spread of HIV prior to the introduction of the programme, the measure used to evaluate the impact of the programme, and the point when the programme is introduced in the epidemic.


    Assessing the impact and cost-effectiveness of different HIV prevention strategies is problematic.
