Cost and Threshold Analysis of Housing as an HIV Intervention
AIDS Behavior, 2007, David R. Holtgrave et al.
This study assesses the cost-effectiveness of a supportive housing program in Chicago, Los Angeles and Baltimore. The program, Housing & Health (H&H), offers housing and services for homeless or unstably housed individuals with HIV/AIDS. Given the amount of research that suggests housing decreases the spread of HIV, the authors conclude that the H&H intervention would be cost-effective if it “prevented just one HIV transmission for every 64 clients served.” This article was written by David R.
