Reflexion - The Economic Burden of HIV/AIDS in Canada
This REFLEXION is the summary of findings from a major program of economic research on HIV/AIDS commissioned by Health Canada. A key objective in conducting this research on the economic burden of HIV/AIDS in Canada was to capitalize on findings emerging from the National HIV/AIDS Economic Research Initiative, link these results to other research, and bring these interim results to bear on pressing policy issues. A cost-of-illness or economic burden approach was selected as the most suitable framework. The overriding objective was to quantify and make explicit several key economic dimensions of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Canada.
