PEPFAR and adult mortality: a replication study of HIV development assistance effects in Sub-Saharan African countries

3ie Replication Paper 15, 2018

In this paper, Nicholas Hein and colleagues conducted a replication of the 2012 publication HIV development assistance and adult mortality in Africa by Eran Bendavid and colleagues. The original study investigated the relationship between increased funding to sub-Saharan African countries through the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and adult mortality. It concluded that during the years of PEPFAR implementation (2004-2008), the odds of adult mortality was significantly lower in PEPFAR sub-Saharan countries as compared to non-PEPFAR sub-Saharan countries.
