24 Jul Poster: Task-shifting and Sharing Practices During Implementation of Differentiated Care for HIV Service Delivery — Experiences from Uganda
The adoption of “Test and Start” to accelerate the achievement of the 95-95-95 goals has increased the number of clients on antiretroviral therapy (ART). In many high HIV burden countries, this rapid increase requires the adoption of streamlined service delivery approaches to combat potential health systems constraints — notably the lack of adequate human resources for health (HRH). Differentiated service delivery (DSD) models are one such innovative approach.
In partnership with USAID through PEPFAR, HRH2030 explored client management practices at 20 health facilities offering ART through DSD models in Uganda. The goal was to better understand staffing types and patterns and the way HRH gaps are addressed at the facility level to develop a model for an HRH optimization tool. The tool allows for task shifting/sharing, which is a key strategy not only for HIV services but to close the estimated 18 million shortfall in health workers projected by 2030.
