The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria Fourth Replenishment (2011-2013): Support to AIDS Treatment Programs: Estimates of the Economic Return on Investment Working Paper |

This study estimates the economic returns that Global Fund-supported ARV therapy services and their associated health benefits can generate over the 11-year period 2011 to 2020. The presented new model quantifies economic returns by linking Global Fund grant delivery results with projections of the future costs of ARV therapy programs and of corresponding gains in patient survival and the economic value of life-years gained.
