This tool is expected to assist in estimating the economic resources needed at national or sub-national level to achieve the goals of the Regional Initiative for the Elimination of Mother-to-child transmission of HIV and congenital syphilis in Latin America and the Caribbean (EI). This information will enable stakeholders to budget the required standard package of services that has been already identified. The CTEI may be used as an aid to prepare proposals for donors for resource mobilization, by governments or agencies, among others.
This tool will only provide estimates. Actual final costs may vary due to several circumstances such as changes in conditions of market prices in countries, in the price sources used for the calculations, or in the conditions of agreements, among others.
