Global Workshop on Differentiated Service Delivery for Key Population

Sat 07 Apr 2018 ข่าวสาร

In response to the growing interest in differentiated service delivery for key populations, the International AIDS Society (IAS) convened the Global Workshop on Differentiated Service Delivery for Key Population with the objective to inform the content, scope and share best practices of differentiated service delivery (DSD) for key populations (KP). The three-day workshop held from February 5-7 in Cape Town, South Africa, brought together nearly 50 participants from 20 countries.

Dr. Reshmie Ramautarsing, a clinical research physician at PREVENTION and Thitiyanun Doi Nakpor, the director of Sisters Foundation had the opportunity to showcase the three models of DSD being implemented under the Key Population-Led Health Services (KPLHS) models in Thailand.
Dr. Ramautarsing emphasized that our DSD success lies in KP lay providers and their strong partnership with the health sectors. The small interactive session received great interest from the participants.

The second part of the workshop was the strategizing session to help identify strategies needed to support the implementation of DSD for KPs. The workshop participants were divided into three groups: peers, providers and policy people. The overlap in priority strategies across all three groups include recognizing the power of ‘peers as providers’ and the political commitment to support the innovation and scale up.

The IAS will coordinate production of a Decision Framework for differentiated care for key populations to provide guidance on how to implement DSD for KPs, which will be launched at the 22nd International AIDS Conference in Amsterdam in July 2018.
