Health Finance & Governance (HFG) Project, 2017.

The USAID-funded Health Finance and Governance project (HFG) estimated unit costs of HIV viral load (VL) and early infant diagnosis (EID) testing in Kenya using a centralized laboratory network reporting on network utilization and outputs. It also estimates HIV VL and EID testing unit costs under a range of scenarios for two point-of-care (POC) diagnostic platforms being considered for deployment by the Ministry of Health (MOH) and partners. The report aims to help the MOH identify opportunities for cost savings, project resource needs as testing coverage expands, make informed decisions on the placement of POC technologies, and help achieve the 90-90-90 targets in Kenya.
