Health Policy Project 

 

 AIM-B is an economic and demographic model for managers that examines the effects of HIV/AIDS on their businesses and projects how it may affect their workforce and profits. The tool is meant to show the tangible impacts that HIV can have on a business, and motivate management to invest in policies and interventions that prevent new HIV infections and mitigate the impacts of HIV on employees and the business. The tool develops HIV and AIDS prevalence estimates for a workforce and models how these will develop in the future. These estimates are used to calculate the potential additional costs to the company due to HIV/AIDS. Costs considered include health care provision, recruitment, training, productivity loss, and death benefits. AIM-B outputs include the number of HIV/AIDS cases in the workforce, and company profits with and without HIV-related impacts. 

AIM-B is available as a tool within the Workplace Policy Builder software and as a stand-alone tool.
