The Copenhagen Consensus Centre, in conjuction with the RUSH Foundation, has launched the RethinkHIV initiative to examine new priorities for HIV/AIDS in Africa. The initiative has commissioned research papers from teams of top health economists, epidemiologists, and demographers, ranking many competing HIV/AIDS interventions based upon benefit-cost metrics to help policy-makers and donors prioritize investments with the highest pay-offs in a world of limited resources. The economists -- including three Nobel Laureates -- is gathering at Georgetown University, Washington DC, to examine new priorities for HIV/AIDS in Africa.

From NICHE, Rob Baltussen and Jan Hontelez, are present and discuss the cost-effectiveness of interventions to control non-sexual transmission.
