Optimized Treatment Costing (OTC)Optimized Treatment Costing (OTC)

The National Optimized Treatment Costing (OTC) tool is a tool designed to calculate total and unit costs of different optimized treatment scenarios for antiretroviral therapy (ART). When national level data are entered, the tool can help policymakers undertaking overall national strategic planning. The primary intent of the OTC tool is to serve as a user-friendly tool where cost data from ongoing studies and/or expenditure data can be used to build, compare and conduct analyses.

  • Where will cost savings occur when treatment scenarios are changed?
  • Which optimized treatment scenario provides the greatest cost savings?
  • What is the total projected cost for different treatment scenarios annually for the next five years, by patient type (with sub-totals for key components)?
  • What is the overall unit cost by patient type for different treatment scenarios?
