Global Coalition on HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria
Forty million people worldwide are now infected with HIV/AIDS. But incidents of the disease could soar even higher in countries such as India, which have insufficient plans for prevention and treatment.
The Global Business Coalition on HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria partnered with Booz Allen Hamilton and nonprofit, government, and business leaders to improve the understanding of HIV/AIDS impacts in India; identify areas for collaboration; and mobilize private and public resources.
To explore a multi-sector response to India’s epidemic, Booz Allen developed an analytic framework and simulated scenarios that illustrated health, economic, and societal impacts if HIV/AIDS cases increased. The model provided real-time feedback on the relative impact of the participants’ actions and a context to measure success, and accounted for intangibles such as the social stigma of HIV/AIDS. It also identified funding shortfalls from previous years, causing participants to rethink their original solutions and recognize long- and short-term policy consequences.
The simulation created 53 cross-sector partnerships and 100 initiatives that could reduce the disease’s impact on India’s GDP by $31.5 billion, and the prevalence, incidence, and mortality of HIV/AIDS by 50%.
New partnerships and leadership skills resulting from Booz Allen’s simulation may guide India’s public and private sectors as its grapples with its HIV/AIDS crisis, and could drive viable solutions for malaria, tuberculosis, and other global health issues.
