The HIV differentiated service delivery (DSD) strategic initiative (SI) aims to provide technical assistance (TA) to address gaps in testing and treatment for key populations, men, adolescents, and children. The role of the initiative is catalytic to the new HIV grants, providing international and local expertise to drive innovation and adaptations in service delivery necessary to close treatment gaps and deliver on the GF’s strategic objectives for HIV.
The overall objective is the provision of expert TA to Côte d’Ivoire for policy and programming implementation to ensure DSD models, adaptations, and/or innovations are developed and scaled in order to improve the efficiency and quality of HIV services through early diagnosis, high treatment coverage, treatment retention, and viral load suppression. ICAP will offer TA focusing on:
- Differentiated HIV care and treatment, including for key populations, men, children, and pregnant/breastfeeding women; advanced HIV disease; and community-based treatment.
- Differentiated HIV testing services, including updating policies, guidelines, and standard operating protocols.
