Co-Chairs:

This session will give an overview on how HIV treatment and prevention cascades are constructed and how the cascade data could be used most efficiently to guide HIV programmes. Efforts will be made to familiarize the audience to the prevention side of HIV cascade, which has not yet been widely discussed and used by countries. The panellists will provide guidance on how a standardized prevention cascade should be created and how it could be used to drive HIV prevention programme implementation. HIV treatment and prevention cascade data from various key populations in various countries will be shared, along with best practices on how these countries have been using the data to improve programme implementation for key populations. Lastly, innovative delivery models aimed at serious simplification of HIV testing services, as well as initiation and maintenance of ART and PrEP, will be discussed in order to improve both treatment and prevention cascades.
