AIDS in the developing world — Don't overlook the ounce of prevention

San Francisco Chronicle

Even if AIDS drugs were free, the goals of prevention and treatment of HIV cannot be fully met with existing resources. Inevitably, the expense of government-sponsored treatment programs will cut into activities to prevent HIV. Using the cost-effectiveness analysis that is under attack, $1 spent on prevention can save 100 times as many years of life as $1 spent on treatment. Yet, most African countries are still woefully behind in providing HIV prevention programs, let alone providing AIDS drugs to large numbers.
