Efficiency monitoring tool for HIV interventions targeting fisher- folk in Kisumu county for Kenya red cross society
The efficiency guide on HIV interventions targeting the fisher folk comes against the backdrop of high and steady HIV prevalence rates in Kisumu County over the last decade. Efforts to contain the HIV epidemic must however take into account that resources are scarce. Scarcity of resources stresses the need to make choices on what health care should be provided, how it should be delivered and in what amounts. In order to maximize on the gains of spending on HIV interventions, implementers need accurate and timely information on the efficiency of different programs. By introducing DEA as a method of comparing efficiency of their different service delivery units, use of this guide will lead to improved efficiency of different interventions within the KRCS. Improved efficiency in the case of HIV interventions would further results to increased access to HIV services and further reduction in HIV prevalence. The project output is a technical efficiency guide for the fisher folk Program. The project goal is to provide a tool that can be used for decision making based on accurate levels of efficiency at KRCS. The main objectives are to prioritize indicators that can be used to measure efficiency of the fisher folk and to formulate and develop a guide that will measure efficiency of fisher folk HIV program as well as other HIV interventions within the KRCS.
