A health economic model: Prediction of the prevention of mother-to-child transmission intervention cost in Central Kenya.
Natacia, Rutendo Magombo
The PMTCT intervention is the most successful HIV prevention measure (Plessis et al., 2014). The program is heavily funded in Kenya by donors such as PEPF AR and the Global fund, leaving the patients with only the direct non-medical costs to bear. The ongoing progressive fund cuts have left questions on sustainability of the intervention and cost shtdies can help the government make crucial financial decisions (Creese et al,.l994). A provider's perspective has been given in the government reports, what is missing is a cost analysis taking on a patient cost perspective.
