Adoption of Health Technologies in India

Implications for the AIDS Vaccine

Indrani Gupta,

Adoption of Health Technologies in India: Implications for the AIDS Vaccine
 
 
The effectiveness of a new health technology is judged by both its accessibility
and also the extent to which it has been adopted in a particular country. With
the possibility of an AIDS vaccine in the near future, the International AIDS
Vaccine Initiative (IAVI) has emphasised the need for countries to prepare well
in advance for its smooth access and adoption. Reiterating IAVI`s appeal, this
book ably captures the course India needs to take for the successful adoption
and implementation of the AIDS vaccine in India.

The first of its kind, this book examines the adoption of four health technologies
in India—Hepatitis B, No Scalpel Vasectomy, Voluntary Counselling and Testing
and Antiretroviral Treatment. Using a set of parameters, the authors not only
bring to light the various dimensions, strengths and weaknesses of adoption
of health technologies in India, but also how and where more attention needs
to be paid with regard to the adoption of the AIDS vaccine.
