Could Long-Acting Medications Facilitate “Ending AIDS by 2030” in Southern Africa? An Allocative Efficiency Analysis
Funded by: National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism
Project dates: September 2019 - June 2024
Principal Investigator: Braithwaite, Scott

To achieve UNAIDS 2030 goals of ending AIDS, it will be necessary to critically assess the role of all available tools and tailor strategies to maximize their impact. However, current mathematical models omit three important tools for achieving 2030 goals in resource-limited regions: (1) Specific interventions that target the HIV care continuum, (2) targeting interventions to high-risk populations that are specifically relevant to a region’s demographics and policy constraints, and (3) alternate timing of the peak of HIV spending.

The current study will use mathematical modeling to evaluate the allocative efficiency of a wide spectrum of combination HIV prevention strategies that involve these three tools.
