GHSC-PSM wil facilitate access to globally-negotiated prices of these medicines including pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) medications and HIV self-test kits (HIVST) to the private sector in Nigeria.

It will also include the determination of implementation and current acceptance of PrEP where roll-out occurred and profile of potential beneficiaries for scale-up in private sector is also a critical scope of this STTA.

    The SFI Research & Market Analysis consultant will also conduct desk review of previous researches and analysis conducted to determine the willingness of PLHIVs (people living with HIV) to pay for their HIV commodities and services, and the willingness of community pharmacies (CPs), medical laboratories and diagnostic centers and private health facilities to stock and dispense ARVs (in the case of CPs and private facilities) and HIV self-testing kits (for all categories of facilities) at a cost, to willing PLHIVs and strategies for confirmatory test and additional HIV services.
