This project would not have been possible without the support of the Academic Model for Prevention and Treatment of HIV/AIDS (AMPATH) and members of the IU-Kenya partnership. We are grateful to Michael Boozer, David Cutler, T. Paul Schultz, Christopher Udry, and seminar participants at the NBER Health Care Program Meeting, the Northeast Universities Development Consortium Conference, the University of Pittsburgh, and Yale University for comments and suggestions. Many individuals contributed to the implementation of the household survey under the direction of the authors and Mabel Nangami. Giovanna d'Adda assisted in managing the second round of the survey and the data collection was facilitated by the field supervision of Irene Muhunzu. We also acknowledge the tremendous contributions of Andrew Anyembe, Caroline Amuyunzu, Jayne Chaina, Norbert Ketter, James Mungai, June Ochanda, and Jacklyne Tetee for administering questionnaires; and Chelimo Cherono, David Marende, Maurice Mungai, Florence Oduor, and Martha Simiyu for computer entry of questionnaires. Financial support for this project was received from the Economic and Social Research Council (UK), Pfizer, Inc., The World Bank, Yale University's Center for Interdisciplinary Research on AIDS (CIRA) through a grant from the National Institute of Mental Health to Michael Merson, M.D. (No. P30 MH 62294), the Social Science Research Council, and the Calderone Program at Columbia University.
