  • Summary:
  • Efficiently delivered interventions to reduce HIV, malaria, and diarrhea are essential to accelerating global health efforts. A 2008 community-integrated prevention campaign in Western Province, Kenya, reached 47,000 individuals over seven days, providing HIV testing and counseling, water filters, insecticide-treated bed nets, condoms, and for HIV-infected individuals, cotrimoxazole prophylaxis and referral for ongoing care. The program modeled the potential cost-effectiveness of a scaled-up integrated prevention campaign. A mass, rapidly implemented campaign for HIV testing, safe water, and malaria control appears economically attractive.
