Assessing the willingness to pay for HIV Counselling and Testing Service in Nigeria – A contingent valuation Survey in Lagos State

Research Details

The purpose of this study was to assess willingness to pay for HIV Counselling and Testing (HCT) service among individuals and identified the determining factors to inform co-payment schemes in the future. The study employed contingent valuation technique to gather data from 768 participants in a cross-sectional survey in Lagos State, Nigeria. Data were analysed using descriptive statistics, chi-square, Mann-Whitney, and GLM regression analysis. Household Income, knowledge of HIV/AIDS, knowing HIV-infected person, knowing someone died of AIDS-related sickness, worry about HIV infections, and fear of HIV-related stigma were important determinants of willingness to pay for HCT service. The findings suggested possibility of partial cost recovery from potential users of HCT service and implementation of co-payment scheme to shore up financial sustainability of the HIV/AIDS programmes in Nigeria.
