Resource Description: The primary objective of this study is to estimate the average income and general expenditures of people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA). The null hypothesis is that income among PLWHA is the same as that of the general population.
Additionally, this study will help to inform estimates of the potential liability faced by Vietnam’s Social Health Insurance scheme if it assumes responsibility for paying for HIV/AIDS treatment. VAAC is also seeking answers to questions about why patients are not enrolling in the insurance scheme and how to increase the enrollment rate.
