HRSA Publishes Journal Articles Demonstrating the Cost-Effectiveness of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program in the Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndromes

Feb 18, 2021 | Julia Zigman

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) published a pair of manuscripts in February demonstrating the cost-effectiveness of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) in the Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndromes (JAIDS).

The two papers present the findings from the first formal evaluation of the RWHAP’s cost-effectiveness at a national level. The first paper presents a new and innovative mathematical model that can be used as a tool for estimating the cost-effectiveness of the RWHAP under a variety of policy scenarios and assumptions. The second paper compares estimated health care costs and outcomes over a 50-year period in the presence of the RWHAP relative to those expected if the comprehensive and integrated system of medical and support services funded by the RWHAP were not available.

Read the first paper.
