Business Analysis And M&E Unit


The NPP continuously reviews and monitors labs of the NHLS as to their turn-around-times for the Priority Programmes tests, as well as their workflow and laboratory needs with regards to equipment, staff, logistics etc. The NPP is constantly striving for improved service delivery to the patient and for enhancing process efficiency where possible.

The NPP produces data reports on a monthly basis consisting of National, Provincial and now District-level data. The data includes total volumes of tests performed as well as the number of tests falling into relevant reporting test ranges.

The data reports provide essential health information as to the progress and effectiveness of South Africa's national HIV programmes and include data for CD4, HIV viral load and Early Infant Diagnosis.
