In Senegal, similar to South Africa, we have supported the development of a five year action plan for HBV and HCV and have completed a full costing of the plan as well as modelling of the projected impact of the plan. We have supplemented the short-term analyses with the design of scenarios for HBV and HCV program scale-up beyond the five-year plan. We have then estimated the long-term costs and impacts of these scenarios as well.
We are currently focused on developing a resource mobilization strategy to support the Ministry of Health’s efforts in closing the financing gap needed to fully implement the five-year plan.
