We explored the economic costs of providing facility HIV testing services across three southern African countries with high HIV burden. Primary costing studies were undertaken in 54 health facilities providing HIV testing services (HTS) in Malawi (n=15), Zambia (n=10) and Zimbabwe (n=29). Routinely collected monitoring and evaluation data for the health facilities were extracted to estimate the costs per individual tested and costs per HIV-positive individual identified as well as key cost drivers. In sensitivity analysis we explored how robust results remained when key cost drivers were varied.
