Specifically, they generally assume that people can move easily from one type of job to another. This assumption is likely to underestimate the impact of the pandemic on production, because the replacement of skilled labour is a slow and expensive task, and labour cannot be shifted simply from one sector to another agriculture to health care, for example in response to shortages in skills.
Another class of models—termed computable general equilibrium models—allow the differential effects of the pandemic across sectors to be estimated. These studies predicted greater economic effects of the pandemic than did regression analysis, and they also found significant variation across industrial sectors.
An important step in limiting the economic effects of the pandemic is to develop comprehensive policies tailored to the needs of the economies of individual countries.
These policies will inevitably include the introduction of treatment and prevention programmes but may also include economic measures, such as targeted training of skills needed in key industries.
Although estimates of the cost of national programmes have been published for some time, only now are estimates of clinical effectiveness being produced.
To assess which programmes in poor countries give the best value for money, future research needs to combine data on cost and on clinical effectiveness. Taking into account the macroeconomic effects of interventions may provoke a number of ethically and politically sensitive dilemmas.
For example, to maintain economic stability it may be necessary to target expensive antiretroviral drugs at highly productive socioeconomic groups in specific industries on the basis of their contribution to economic output rather than their healthcare needs.
Such a strategy would generate greater economic prosperity and government funds, allow time for replacement labour to be trained, and thereby reduce the overall impact of the pandemic.
