Designing the Financial Tools to Promote Universal Free-Access to AIDS Care
AbstractTypical of the AIDS epidemics is that governments in developing countries under-invest in drugs production because of the possible appearance of a curative vaccine. We design a set of financial tools allowing to hedge against this event and achieving full risk-sharing. We show that the introduction of those assets increase social welfare in developing countries, as well as the number of treated patients and the provision of public good.
