Abstract

"Now that the daily cost of high quality AIDS drugs has fallen to less than one dollar a day, what would happen if the Indian government were to finance such treatment? This was the question posed to World Bank staff by an official of the National AIDS Control Organization (NACO). To answer this question, the World Bank assembled a team of Indian and international authors and asked them to estimate the costs and health benefits of three different national policy options. The result is the present study, which draws on the international literature, a set of background papers commissioned explicitly for this study and on the authors' own expertise. A first draft of this study was delivered to NACO and circulated to a limited number of people in the government in January 2003."
