The Kenya AIDS Strategic Framework 2014/15–2018/19 (KASF) is the overarching strategic document guiding the HIV response in Kenya’s devolved governance system. The implementation of KASF goals will contribute to the achievement of Vision 2030 targets by ensuring universal access to comprehensive HIV prevention, treatment, and care. Kenya has also committed to reaching UNAIDS’ ambitious 90-90-90 targets by 2019. These targets call for 90 percent of all people living with HIV (PLHIV) to know their status, 90 percent of those diagnosed to be on antiretroviral therapy (ART), and 90 percent of people on ART to be virally suppressed. Several resource gaps for HIV programs have been estimated in the past. This brief attempts to harmonize the methodologies used in estimating HIV commodity gaps in the past. To do so, major stakeholders (Clinton Health Access Initiative, National AIDS & STI Control Programme, and National AIDS Control Council) were consulted in arriving at the assumption and targets used in the resource-gap estimation model. In this model, two scenarios are considered: financial needs for key commodities under the current guidelines, and a more ambitious “scale-up” scenario. In addition to harmonizing the way Kenya estimates HIV commodities gaps, the model will also support the mobilization of resources toward attaining the 90-90-90 targets.
