Sex, Drugs and Shadow Prices: The Economics of HIV Prevention

Edward Kaplan (Yale)

Worldwide, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) remain a major preventable cause of death, thus the importance of programs intended to prevent HIV infection is obvious. Less obvious is how to apportion those resources available for HIV prevention among programs targeting members of different risk groups in different locations. Getting this right requires joining the epidemiology of HIV and the evaluation of prevention programs with economic analysis. How to do so is the subject of this talk.
