The National Optimized Treatment Costing (OTC) tool is a tool designed to calculate total and unit costs of different optimized treatment scenarios for antiretroviral therapy (ART). When national level data are entered, the tool can help policymakers undertaking overall national strategic planning. The primary intent of the OTC tool is to serve as a user-friendly tool where cost data from ongoing studies and/or expenditure data can be used to build, compare and conduct analyses.
Syphilis Interventions Towards Elimination (SITE) is a dynamic transmission model to evaluate and project impact and cost of syphilis interventions (screening, treatment and prevention) and national control programs. Outcomes include prevalence of active syphilis, incident cases and infections averted, across 7 lower- and higher-risk groups in a national adult population.
The AIDS Impact Model for Business is a tool that is used by businesses to assess how HIV/AIDS may affect their profitability in the future. AIM-B uses a simple approach to calculate the number of workers who are HIV infected, the number of workers who may become HIV infected in the future and determine how this is projected to affect corporate expenditures (e.g., additional health care costs) and revenues (e.g., worker absenteeism). By obtaining this information, it becomes easier for businesses to understand how best to respond to HIV in order to mitigate this economic impact.
