Policy Analysis of Human Immunodeficiency Virus Screening and Intervention: An Overview of Modeling Approaches


AIDS & Public Policy Journal 5, no. 3 (Summer 1990): 119-31

In this article we identify and review three categories of models of HIV screening and intervention (ranging from very simple to complex) that have been used to study AIDS policy questions. We highlight the relative strengths and weaknesses of each type of model and describe a variety of public policy issues that can be studied using such models. We conclude by highlighting gaps in current research and identifying important policy questions for further analysis.
