Abstract

AIDS has serious economic consequences. Besides cost calculations and their application to cost-effectiveness and other analyses, economic issues include identifying and assessing patterns of care, analysing problems of finance, exploring impacts on markets other than health care and modelling scenarios for future developments and strategies. An international conference on "Economic Aspects of AIDS and HIV Infection" was held in Munich during March 1989. The papers presented at the conference form the basis of this publication. The book focusses on the exploration of economic aspects, on empirical approaches, on case studies and on modelling techniques for economic scenarios. It provides an up-to-date overview of the state of economic research on AIDS in Europe.
