Increasing eligibility for treatment necessitates reallocation of resources and strategic investment to prepare the healthcare system and ensure access to treatment. This policy will increase the number of patients needing treatment in the near term, which will put stress on human resources for health, facilities, and the supply chain. Recognizing these challenges, the USAID- and PEPFAR-funded Health Policy Project (HPP) provided technical assistance and programmatic support to the government of Botswana to address its ongoing efforts to restructure the health sector. Using the OneHealth Tool, HPP analyzed the costs of implementing the WHO 2013 recommendations and the test and treat model in 2016.
