RethinkHIV: The Book
Rush was founded to help breathe new thinking into HIV policy and on-the-ground interventions. That is why we created RethinkHIV in partnership with the Copenhagen Consensus Centre. RethinkHIV was the first-ever attempt at a comprehensive cost-benefit analysis of sub-Saharan African HIV interventions by leading epidemiologists, demographers and economists. The research is available online, and has been published by Cambridge University Press.
Rush has provided three-year "Innovation and Sustainability Grants" to ActionAid, which launched in August, 2012. The grants were awarded to country-teams in Uganda and The Gambia who bid for the three-year funding as part of a competition set up by Rush with ActionAid support to pioneer new sustainable initiatives on the ground involving People Living With HIV/AIDS.
IAEN, Washington DC,
Rush co-sponsored the International AIDS Economics Network Pre-Conference which brought together policymakers and researchers from around the globe to present and discuss the most recent developments in the field of HIV economics. Rush provided 10 scholarships to economists from developing countries enabling them to attend this two-day pre-conference as well as participate in the global IAS 2012 conference.
RethinkHIV II Workshop
Rush convened a two-day workshop of leading HIV economists and epidemiologists, donors, policy-makers, civil society activists and practitioners to gain inputs for a research agenda to drive forward compelling policy framework to improve HIV resource allocation.
