Editorial Reviews

`Overall, I would categorize the book as an excellent resource on the current literature in the economic evaluation of HIV-prevention programs. For a researcher, this [second] section offers a gold mine of background and reference material. The editor and individual chapter authors clearly put much thought and effort into compiling a comprehensive book on the subject ... its best use is that of a resource guide for background information and hypothesis generation.' Medical Decision Making, 20:1 (2000) `... for the researcher and economist, it is an excellent book to consult. Recommended for all academic libraries.' AIDS Book Review Journal, 57 (2000) `There are many strengths of Handbook of Economic Evaluation of HIV Prevention Programs including its thorough coverage of the cost-effectiveness evaluation model, the utility of this model for both evalatuion and policy-making regarding HIV prevention programming, and its organization and clarity making it useful to non-economist readers as well.' Evaluation and Program Planning, 23 (2000)
