Description

This presentation describes use of a HIV microsimulation to inform design of a multi-level intervention for HIV-infected persons with alcohol use disorders in Maharashtra, India. In particular, how should trialists and policy makers select from 15,000 alternative specifications of multi-level interventions to identify those with the highest probable value.
