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

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.

Zeit: 5. April, 18.15
Ort: Festsaal der Oesterreichischen Akademie der Wissenschaften, 1010 Wien,
