An international exercise, called aids2031, has been carried out by a consortium of partners to help assess the long run trajectory of HIV/AIDS, what can be done to reduce the number of new cases of HIV, and how countries will be able to finance the measures they need to address HIV/AIDS in the future at lower costs and in more effective, efficient, and sustainable ways than they do now. aids2031 focuses on how the nature of the epidemic can be changed between now and 2031, fifty years after AIDS was first reported. One of the nine aids2031 working groups covers the costs and financing of the epidemic. This Working Group, led by Results for Development, focuses on modeling and analyzing the long term costs and financing of the epidemic and examining scenarios in which major policy shifts now can improve the future expenditure and financing situation. This exercise translates the objectives of the global review into the Cambodian context and has the following objectives: Estimate the long term costs of HIV/AIDS for Cambodia, given assumed trends in the epidemic and a range of prevention, treatment, and mitigation scenarios; Construct and evaluate scenarios for financing the response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic between now and 2031 in the Cambodian setting; and, Use existing evidence to make recommendations in setting priorities for resource allocation in Cambodia to address HIV/AIDS.
