Abstract:Thirty years after the identification of the disease that became known as AIDS, humanitarian organizations warn that the fight against HIV/AIDS has slowed, amid a funding shortfall and donor fatigue. This collective volume aims at identifying the most effective ways to tackle the pandemic across sub-Saharan Africa. In Part I, The research, the book offers analyses of HIV/AIDS policy choices using cost-benefit analysis across six major topics: sexual transmission of HIV; prevention of non-sexual transmission of HIV; treatment; strengthening health systems; social policy interventions to enhance the HIV/AIDS response; and vaccine research and development. Each analysis is followed by two contributions providing alternative perspectives. Part II, Ranking the opportunities, presents the findings of the Nobel laureate economist expert panel (members: Ernest Aryeetey, Paul Collier, Edward C. Prescott, Thomas C. Schelling, and Vernon L. Smith), the findings of an African civil society panel, and a conclusion by Bjørn Lomborg. [ASC Leiden abstract]
