Zimbabwe: Estimating Efficiency of Joint HIV and Reproductive Health Service Tranche 1

Overview

Overall, the activities divided into three tranches aimed to produce new evidence about improving efficiency and effectiveness of HIV prevention through combining it with reproductive health services and delivering it as RBF/OBA. The evaluation was organized around three questions:

(1) efficiency of combining and funding as RBF/OBA,

(2) modeled impact of averted HIV and its consequences, and,

(3) modeled impact of averted unplanned pregnancies and their consequences.

This Tranche 1 supported the development of methodology and evaluation design for statistical modeling of averted HIV cases. The models could be used worldwide and were to be tested in Zimbabwe.

Status

Closed. This first tranche that supported the methodology for testing the delivery of the joint HIV and reproductive healthcare was concluded. The methodology proved viable and consistent with the RBF method of financing. All actives were completed and the tranche closure was waiting for tangible results from the second and third tranche.
