Fostering Scale-Up of Differentiated Service Delivery to Achieve Sustainable Epidemic Control
The HIV Coverage, Quality, and Impact Network (CQUIN) held its second annual meeting from November 5-7 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The learning network brought together over 160 representatives from all 11 member countries, including representatives from ministries of health, civil society, advocacy groups, recipients of care, U.S. government agencies, multi-lateral and bilateral partners, academic institutions, and PEPFAR implementing partners.
The three-day meeting explored topics related to CQUIN’s communities of practice and country priorities for scaling up DSD. Participants worked together to review their progress towards DSD scale-up, uptake of the different DSD models and how they would like to optimize that, exchange best practices and key lessons learned, identify common challenges, and determine priorities for the coming year. They engaged in interactive panel discussions and breakout sessions, on topics ranging from differentiated testing to monitoring and evaluation of DSD. An interactive tools lab allowed country teams and partners to showcase innovations and resources used to support DSD implementation.
