Economics and Epidemiology of HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Non-Communicable Diseases in Africa and Asia

Program Description

Since 1999, CGHD has been a leader in applying the tools of health economics, epidemiology, and program evaluation to understand the public health consequences of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in sub-Saharan Africa and Asia and evaluate the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of program and policy responses.  Much of this work has taken place in South Africa, in collaboration with CGHD’s Johannesburg-based partner, the Health Economics and Epidemiology Research Office (HE2RO), a division of the Wits Health Consortium of the Faculty of Health Sciences at Wits University.  Other studies have been conducted in Kenya, Zambia, and elsewhere on the continent, and in China and Vietnam.
