Project Summary

A cost-utility analysis was performed to estimate the costs and quality adjusted life year (QALY) of HIV prevention program compared to only existing programs. This analysis focused on both the general population and high risk populations. This study found that the incremental cost effectiveness ratio of HIV vaccination was most sensitive to change in risk behaviors at the post-vaccination period. If postvaccination risk behavior remained unchanged, HIV vaccination for high risk populations would be more cost-effective than for the general population.
