Stakeholders’ perception of a total market approach to HIV self-testing (HIVST) for the private sector in Nigeria
This article on Stakeholders’ perception of a total market approach to HIV self-testing (HIVST) for the private sector in Nigeria highlights private sector stakeholders’ perceptions of the enablers and barriers of the HIVST market in Nigeria.
In the study, in-dept interviews were conducted with HIVST supply chain stakeholders and private sector providers (PPMVs and Community Pharmacies) with responses analysised to develop a total market approach analysis for supply chain stakeholders and archetypes for community pharmacies and PPMVs based on insights gathered from their journey map.
The study concluded that to address challenges which already exist, the government need to revise the process guidelines for introducing new HIVST products in the Nigerian market, develop contingency plans to ensure the supply of HIVST remains sufficient when experiencing economic shocks, and create a sustainable roadmap toward optimizing the market for HIVST kits.
