The Excel-based spreadsheet tool, developed by USAID’s Health Finance and Governance (HFG) project, can be used to estimate the costs and human resource implications of scaling up HIV viral load monitoring and the use of viral load testing for early infant diagnosis (EID). Users can choose between different testing platforms, target populations, and supporting practices, and view outputs accordingly.
