YES: Andrew Creese, Katherine Floyd, Anita Alban, and Lorna
Guinness, from “Cost-Effectiveness of HIV/AIDS Interventions in
Africa: A Systematic Review of the Evidence,” The Lancet
NO: Philip J. Hilts, from “Changing Minds: Botswana Beats Back
AIDS,” in Rx for Survival: Why We Must Rise to the Global Challenge
(Penguin Books, 2005)
Andrew Creese and his colleagues, who work for the World Health
Organization (WHO) and European universities, suggest that costeffectiveness
is an important criterion for deciding how to allocate scarce
health care funding. A case of HIV/AIDS can be prevented for $11 by
selective blood safety measures and targeted condom distribution with
treatment of sexually transmitted diseases. In contrast, antiretroviral
treatment for adults can cost several thousand dollars. They argue that a
strong economic case exists for prioritizing preventive interventions and
TB treatment. Philip J. Hilts, who teaches journalism at Boston
University, describes a comprehensive HIV/AIDS program in Botswana.
This program offered not only preventive care, but sophisticated triple drug
AIDS treatments to all people of the nation, free of charge. By 2005, the
program was treating 43,000 people and the cost of treatment is one tenth
of what it is in the United States.
