Quantitative Evaluation of HIV Prevention Programs

Policy makers in federal, state, local, and community levels that are involved in HIV prevention planning require answers to key questions so that their decisions are based on scientifically sound data and logical analysis. This chapter addresses several key questions to HIV prevention decision making: What do HIV prevention programs really cost? Are HIV prevention programs worth the investment? Which programs are the most cost-effective? How can we estimate the impact of a national rollout of a program before actual implementation? How can we rule out economically inefficient programs prior to implementation? Does HIV prevention funding follow the epidemic and flow to areas in most need? How can meaningful performance standards be set? and Is the national HIV prevention effort truly making a difference in stemming the epidemic? The chapter ends with some thoughts on increasing the development of economic evaluation techniques that can truly inform HIV prevention policy makers.
