Assignment Report: Cost-Effectiveness of Regional HIV and AIDS Behaviour Change Communication (BCC) Programme

Abstract

This report sets out an assessment, so far as data allow, of the Regional HIV and AIDS Behaviour Change Communication (BCC) programme which supports three civil society organisations and their projects to: Reduce the spread of HIV in South Africa through health education and 'edutainment'

Increase knowledge and shift beliefs and behaviours towards behaviour likely to reduce the spread of HIV/AIDS

Improve compliance with treatment with Anti-Retroviral Therapy (ART) through increased education of those on medication, community support for sufferers and other interventions

From the evidence found the report concludes that the programmes are offering benefits that make them cost-effective relative to further investment in ART.
