Fostering Scale Up of Differentiated Service Delivery to Achieve Sustainable Epidemic Control
The HIV Coverage, Quality, and Impact Network (CQUIN) held its annual meeting from February 13-15 in Maputo, Mozambique. Representatives from ministries of health in nine CQUIN countries gathered, along with implementing partners, donors, civil society, and UN agencies, to review lessons from the first year of CQUIN, and work toward the scale-up of differentiated service delivery (DSD) for HIV.
The three-day meeting explored topics related to CQUIN’s communities of practice and country priorities for scaling up DSD. Each day had a theme based on CQUIN’s three major focus areas: Coverage, Quality, and Impact. Plenary presentations and panel discussions focused on including mapping the scale-up of DSD, optimizing treatment, and DSD for patients at high-risk of advanced HIV disease progression. Participants took a deeper dive in breakout groups on a range of topics, from monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of DSD, to building a learning network.
