Scaling up the sustainable use of HIV services
SHOPS Plus supports USAID’s Sustainable Financing Initiative to develop a strategy to scale up use of HIV services in Rivers and Lagos states through the private sector. The project completed an assessment of the health system in each state, as well as the market for HIV services, and identified private service delivery models that could bridge any gaps between supply and demand. The project identified seven types of people living with HIV based on their general care-seeking behavior, the length of time they have been living with their diagnosis, and their income. For each type, SHOPS Plus developed targeted recommendations for how USAID could invest in private sector solutions to address the clients’ needs and desires for accessing HIV care and treatment services.
