July 14th, 2022 | Event


DATE: July 29, 2022
TIME: 7:45–8:45 AM EST, 11:45 AM–12:45 PM UTC
PLACE: Room 516/Channel 6

Integrating person-centered HIV services within public and private sector primary health care (PHC) is a critical strategy for sustained services as part of national health programs and 2030 universal health coverage (UHC) goals.

Recent studies and real-world implementation have found cost-efficiencies associated with integrating person-centered care (PCC) with HIV and PHC service uptake, treatment continuation, improved individual health outcomes and service delivery. However, integrated PCC can be nebulous, with models and service delivery packages varying based on population needs and preferences.

This session will highlight experiences of delivering integrated PCC to meet the unique needs of distinct client populations.

Participants will hear firsthand how PCC shapes clients’ care experience, as well as from the perspectives of providers, implementing partners, policymakers, and donors on how and why integrated person-centered care advances local and global HIV, PHC, and UHC goals.

This session will be very useful for health providers, program managers, implementers, civil society organizations, community monitoring groups, client advocates, private sector partners, and policymakers.

Facilitated by Kate Onyejekwe, director, JSI’s International Division and Katya Gamazina, director, Eastern Europe and Central Asia, PATH, Ukraine, the panel will also feature:

  • Davina Canagasabey, a senior technical advisor at PATH,
  • Meg Doherty, coordinator of treatment and care in the Department of HIV/AIDS, World Health Organization, Geneva
  • Robert Ferris, chief, Division of Prevention, Care & Treatment USAID| Office of HIV/AIDS, Bureau of Global Health
  • Rena Janamnuaysook, programme manager, Transgender Health, Inst. of HIV Research and Innovation, Thailand
