New global guidelines have markedly increased the number of people living with HIV (PLHIV) eligible for treatment, straining the capacity of health systems in low-resource settings. In response, differentiated service delivery (DSD) has been developed as a way to improve the quality and efficiency of HIV programs. Moving away from a “one size fits all” model, DSD tailors HIV services for diverse groups of PLHIV while maintaining the principles of the public health approach.

ICAP at Columbia University convenes the 10-country HIV Coverage, Quality and Impact Network (CQUIN), which fosters south-to-south exchange and joint learning directed at scaling up high quality DSD. Building on the lessons learned from CQUIN, this satellite will convene Ministries of Health, civil society, academics, and other implementers to discuss cutting edge issues related to DSD scale-up.
