Regional Policy Brief: A focus on differentiated service delivery for adolescents and young people living with HIVPATA2019-12-05T01:08:18+02:00
The objective of this situational analysis is to review evidence to-date on differentiated service delivery and differentiated treatment platforms for ART delivery for AYLHIV in East and Southern Africa (ESA). As per the scope of work, the focus includes adolescent-focused, community and health facility-based treatment models where antiretroviral therapy (ART) refills are included – including, but not limited to, community ART refill groups (CARGS)/ community ART adherence groups (CAAGS). In doing so, it aims to:
• Take stock of programmatic, experiential and academic evidence to-date on differentiated service and ART delivery for AYPLHIV.
• Examine strengths, gaps, challenges and identify future directions of differentiated service and ART delivery for AYPLHIV;
• Generate evidence and document current differentiated service and ART delivery platforms for AYPLHIV in ESA;
• Feature some promising and effective models involving differentiated service and ART delivery for AYPLHIV in the ESA region;
• Highlight pertinent research questions and gaps for consideration; and
• Make recommendations for a way forward, including replication, scale-up, and future directions.
