The emergence of HIV as a major public health problem has been accompanied by calls for "targeting" of HIV prevention resources. Numerous heuristics and "rules of thumb" have emerged to guide the allocation process. This article reviews recent work in which epidemic modeling and optimization theory have been combined to look at the problem of resource allocation for epidemic control. The relationship between such models and cost effectiveness analysis is discussed. Several applications to the funding of HIV prevention programs are presented.
