For children, adolescents and pregnant and breastfeeding women
Published by International AIDS Society (IAS), July 2017
Differentiated care, or differentiated service delivery, provides a framework for innovating service delivery. Differentiated care is a client-centred approach that simplifies and adapts HIV services across the cascade, in ways that both serve the needs of PLHIV better and reduce unnecessary burdens on the health system. It applies to all populations, including children, adolescents and pregnant and breastfeeding women. The framework is aimed at supporting HIV programme managers at the national and district level to adapt or build differentiated models of ART delivery. The document guides the reader through how to assess the data and identify priorities to address specific and local challenges.
