The USAID-funded Health Policy Project (HPP) formed a study team to estimate the unit costs associated with a minimum package of HIV services for female sex workers (FSWs) and men who have sex with men (MSM).

To support the use of the analysis and cost data presented in the final study, the HPP study team also identified the need to develop a companion user guide to provide policymakers and program planners with a practical, stepwise approach to using data for decision making and evidence-based HIV programs, services, and policies, that address the needs of people living with HIV (PLHIV), MSM, and FSWs in Côte d’Ivoire.

Using a stepwise approach with accompanying tables and worksheets, the guide first explains the importance of calculating average costs using data analysis presented in the larger study. Next, it explains how to determine and use program reach to estimate annual unit costs for HIV programs. Finally, the reader is shown how to project programmatic and national annual costs for FSWs and MSM. 

The guide is available in English and French.
