Medical College Wins Grant to Study Cost Effectiveness of Preventing Acute-phase HIV Transmission

The Medical College of Wisconsin has received a three-year, $829,000 grant from the National Institute of Mental Health to study the cost-effectiveness of preventing acute-phase HIV transmission. This information is needed by decision makers at federal, state, and local levels who must prioritize HIV prevention intervention development and implementation.

The highly-infectious acute phase of initial infection is a promising, but relatively unexplored, target for behavioral change interventions, according to lead investigator Steven D. Pinkerton, Ph.D., professor of psychiatry in the Medical College’s Center for AIDS Intervention Research.
His team will provide estimates of the magnitude and consequences of acute-phase HIV transmission, and the potential economic efficiency of various intervention strategies to prevent transmission during the acute phase of infection.
