This chapter evaluates the cost-effectiveness of potential preventive and therapeutic HIV vaccines. It presents a mathematical model to assess the costs and benefits of vaccines in early- and late-stage epidemics and then assesses the use and effectivity of vaccine programs in a group of homosexual men in San Francisco, California. The cost-effective analysis presented in this chapter demonstrates that vaccines of even modest efficacy provide substantial health and economic benefits.

Keywords:   cost-effectiveness, preventive HIV vaccines, therapeutic HIV vaccines, HIV vaccines, vaccines, homosexual
