Setting Priorities for HIV/AIDS Interventions

Author

Listed:
  • Robert J. Brent

Abstract

HIV/AIDS is much too complex a phenomenon to be understood only by reference to common sense and ethical codes. This book presents the cost–benefit analysis (CBA) framework in a well-researched and accessible manner to ensure that the most important considerations are recognized and incorporated.
