Study on India’s AIDS efforts

Here’s another quick news note.  This Kaiser Network article reports the release of a new study titled “Tackling HIV in India: Evidence-Based Priority Setting and Programming.” *  Here’s an excerpt:

“Globally, we have solid evidence for what works in addressing concentrated epidemics through large-scale programs, focusing on vulnerable communities at highest risk,” the authors write, adding, “The challenge today is scaling up proven interventions to provide services to the vast majority of populations at risk. In most countries in Asia, this will require expanding programs in both geographic reach and populations served, monitoring the quality and use of services, and measuring the impact on behavioral change” (Health Affairs release, 7/7).

* The study was written by Mariam Claeson from the World Bank and Ashok Alexander from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s initiative addressing HIV/AIDS in India.
