The slide decks and recordings from the AIDS 2020: Virtual satellite session, organized by IAS.

Since being endorsed in the 2016 World Health Organization guidelines, differentiated service delivery (DSD) has become a core component of HIV treatment programmes in sub-Saharan Africa. 

In 2020, the advent of COVID-19 has further highlighted the critical importance of ensuring that HIV services are adaptable and client-centred.  As a result, six-month antiretroviral refills, commonly referred to as 6MMD, has emerged as a silver bullet to supporting people living with HIV during COVID-19.  But DSD has more to offer than just longer ART refills... 

Featuring programmes in Kenya, Sierra Leone and South Africa, people living with HIV, implementers, and ministry of health representatives discussed how DSD is adapting and evolving in 2020.
