Model Methodology

  • Uses historical data (demand for drugs, ages of the patients, HIV epidemiological data) to estimate future demand.
  • The tool looks at the past two years of data and projects linear, optimistic, or pessimistic scenarios.

Questions Answered

Determines targets to be set for the number of pediatric patients on ART, and forecasts and quantifies corresponding drug requirements.

  • How many people will require ART in the upcoming year and what quantities of drugs should be procured to support them?
  • What if the scale-up is linear, optimistic (a defined percent increase over the linear), or pessimistic (a defined percent decrease below the linear)?

Program Areas

Pediatric ART

Data Outputs

Calculates monthly enrollment estimates, choosing one of four scale-up scenarios: linear, optimistic (a defined percent increase over the linear), pessimistic (a defined percent decrease below the linear), or completely user-defined

Limitations

  • A very simplified model
  • No direct costing element built into the model, although ARV unit costs can be input to calculate ARV procurement costs
  • Not publicly available

Online Access

Model available on request but not designed to be used without expert guidance.
