As the Government of Botswana (GOB) moves forward with a plan to expand coverage of health services, increasing the “value for money” of current health service delivery and identifying new financing sources is critical. As part of the 2010 Integrated Health Service Plan, a 10-year strategic plan for the health sector, the Ministry of Health (MOH) will introduce the Essential Health Services Package (EHSP)—health interventions to be provided as part of a package to the entire population. Although understanding the costs of delivering health interventions and the major cost drivers is critical to expanding the health sector, current knowledge of these costs is limited. This study aims to shed light on the overall costs of key interventions that address the major disease burden in Botswana.

The study comprised two parts. In Part I, the Health Policy Project (HPP) technical team assessed the unit costs of providing specific HIV interventions at two levels of service delivery. In Part II, the team used the OneHealth tool (Avenir Health, n.d.) to project the overall resources required between 2013 and 2018 to provide EHSP services, based on normative inputs.
