This Framework is a practical tool to guide HIV programme managers on how to consider HIV testing and linkage services differently. The structured approach to performing the situation analysis and building HIV testing service delivery models is aimed at helping countries reach the first 90.
Over the past two decades, major progress has been made in identifying people living with HIV (PLHIV) and linking them to HIV care. Many countries are already reaching the first 90 target with gains made by adapting HIV testing services, providing services both at facility and community locations and embracing task sharing. However, for some countries and some specific populations, access to testing remains a major challenge. How can we reach the remaining people living with HIV who do not yet know their status? Can the principles of differentiated service delivery help identify our gaps and adapt our services? Read on to see how we can start to test differently.
