What is a Tool?
Tools are evidence-based materials that facilitate or strengthen the fidelity of an intervention at the individual, HIV service delivery, or health systems level (e.g., SOPs, analytic spreadsheets, job-aids, decision trees, etc). A tool can become a PEPFAR Solution once used in an implementation experience, which results in data demonstrating impact.
WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?
To achieve the UNAIDS 95-95-95 targets, health facilities and community-based HIV service delivery points need to provide efficient, effective, and high-quality services to ensure that people living with HIV (PLHIV) know their status, receive antiretroviral therapy (ART), and achieve and main viral suppression. A key resource to achieve this goal, among other system factors, is the health workforce. Most low- and middle-income countries, though, experience many challenges when it comes to producing an adequate health workforce. These include, misallocation of new health workers, shortages of available health workers, and limited productivity and performance of the existing health workforce. Each of the 3 tool kits below address one of the above stated challenges, and can be used individually or in conjunction with one another.
