CHDS Deputy Director's research cited by Secretary of State Clinton

November 9, 2011

In a speech titled "Creating an AIDS-Free Generation," Secretary of State Hillary Clinton cited CHDS Deputy Director Stephen Resch's ongoing research into the benefit of increased investment in AIDS treatment in both low and middle income countries.

Referring to Dr. Resch's recently published article in PLoS One, Secretary Clinton said that, "A study published just last month weighed the costs and benefits and found that - I quote - "the economic benefits of treatment will substantially offset, and likely exceed, program costs within 10 years of investment." In other words, treating people will not only save lives, it will generate considerable economic returns as well."
