Methodology
Deterministic dynamic model including HIV transmission, disease progression and continuum of care, stratified by gender, age group and key population in order to understand and estimate the potential impact of HIV self-testing (HIVST) if fully scaled-up in a West African context. The analysis estimated HIVST coverage, incremental gains on the care cascade and epidemiological impact (disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) averted, life years gained, deaths averted, and HIV infections averted) in the different sub-populations targeted by ATLAS. The analysis also aimed to understand cost-effectiveness of each implemented model of delivery and the financial savings to health systems compared to traditional testing strategies.
