Feasibility of Private Sector Delivery of Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis in Windhoek, Namibia

With funding from USAID/Washington under the Sustainable Financing Initiative (SFI), the USAID mission in Namibia engaged SHOPS Plus to assess the feasibility of private sector delivery of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) in Windhoek, Namibia. This assessment informs the design of future efforts by USAID/Namibia and the Ministry of Health and Social Services to engage private providers in this area. Through the feasibility assessment, SHOPS Plus set out to document the current scope of PrEP services in the private sector, as well as the potential demand, the ability of private providers to reach this market, the feasibility and willingness of the government to partner with the private sector to deliver PrEP, and any other opportunities or bottlenecks that USAID/Namibia and the Ministry would need to address in order to move forward with a pilot effort. This effort is aligned with SFI’s objective of mobilizing domestic resources for HIV by engaging the private sector.
