This brief summarizes the South Africa Private Health Sector Assessment conducted by the Strengthening Health Outcomes through the Private Sector (SHOPS) project, led by Abt Associates in June through August 2014. As the South African government has successfully increased its own HIV care and treatment efforts, the USAID mission in South Africa has begun planning how to transition its local partners away from PEPFAR funding and toward self-sufficiency. The assessment outlines ways these partners in Gauteng and Western Cape provinces could diversify their income base, reduce their dependence on donor funding, and improve their financial sustainability. By doing so, these organizations could continue to deliver essential HIV services and contribute to South Africa’s successful national HIV response beyond PEPFAR. Sean Callahan prepared the brief, which discusses the assessment methods, findings, and recommendations.
