GAO releases report on PEPFAR per-patient costs

The U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) released a report titled “President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief: Per-Patient Costs Have Declined Substantially, but Better Cost Data Would Help Efforts to Expand Treatment,” which examines “(1) how per-patient treatment costs have changed and affected program implementation, (2) how PEPFAR cost information supports efforts to expand treatment, and (3) how PEPFAR has met a legislated treatment spending requirement.” The report also provided recommendations including “that State develop a plan for (1) expanding the use of in-depth cost studies to additional countries and sites, where appropriate, and (2) broadening expenditure analysis to include non-PEPFAR costs, as feasible.”
