Abstract: In a reanalysis of our results,1 Michelle Remme and colleagues (October, 2015)2 found that “secondary schooling might [even] be as good an HIV investment as male circumcision”, not to mention more expensive biomedical options.2 As Remme and colleagues rightly point out, we had excluded from our cost-effectiveness calculations the myriad other benefits to secondary schooling beyond HIV. If the HIV community paid the costs of schooling net of those other benefits, secondary schooling would be extremely cost-effective.
