Community-based antiretroviral therapy (ART) delivery for female sex workers in Tanzania: 6-month ART initiation and adherence

SOAR researchers assessed a community-based program that provided female sex workers with mobile or home-based ART services. The findings demonstrate that the community-based model can lead to higher ART initiation and retention rates, and better adherence compared to standard facility-based ART provision. As countries aim to reach the 95–95–95 targets, national HIV responses must expand their strategies to effectively provide ART services, particularly to hard-to-reach key populations.

Naidoo, N., Zuma, N., et al.

This CBHP is delivered by ward-based outreach teams (WBOTs); provision of community HIV services comprises an important component of this programme. We conducted an exploratory study to determine the facilitators and barriers to successful implementation of this CBHP in rural Mopani District, South Africa.

Community Voices for Policy Development: Applying Human-Centered Design in Tanzania

In an ideal world, numerous stakeholders contribute to policy development, including policymakers, implementers and, as importantly, the individuals and communities who will be affected by the policies. All too often, this broad-based input simply doesn’t happen, which contributes to policies that are not well designed or effectively implemented.
