In 2016, Kenya’s Ministry of Health updated its national HIV guidelines to provide guidance on the use of antiretrovirals to treat and prevent HIV. To inform implementation and resource mobilization, the National AIDS and STI Control Programme, the National AIDS Control Council, and HP+ jointly conducted an assessment on the costing implications of implementing the new guidelines. The study considered two costing scenarios—one based on achievement of UNAIDS’ 90-90-90 targets and another based on full adoption of the new guidelines. The results show that as more people living with HIV are enrolled in treatment programs, costs will increase under both scenarios, with commodities remaining as the largest cost driver. Kenya will need to mobilize additional resources for HIV treatment to fully implement the new guidelines.
See the full report and our brief, outlining the total cost for both scenarios, cost drivers, and implications and recommendations for scale-up.
