Demand for heath services is increasing in
many African countries, particularly those
affected by HIV/AIDS. Sub-Saharan Africa
is experiencing the long-awaited
demographic transition leading to an
increase in demand for contraceptive
services and STI treatment facilities. Health
services are strained due to increasing
population and declining public spending on
health services. Introducing cost sharing
measures is one solution for health
providers to recover cost and generate
revenue to expand provision.
