Cost-effectiveness of HAART underestimated
Date:2/16/2012

Bohdan Nosyk and Julio Montaner of the British Columbia Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS in Vancouver, Canada argue in an Essay published in this week's PLoS Medicine that the cost-effectiveness of HAART roll out has been significantly underestimated, because economic analyses have not yet taken into account the beneficial impact of HAART on prevention of HIV transmission.

The authors comment: "the strategic value of expanded HIV testing and expansion of HAART coverage has dramatically increased. We believe this should open the door for wide-scale implementation of ''Seek, Test, Treat and Retain'' programs as a means to control HIV and AIDS-related morbidity, mortality, and transmission at once."
