What We Do
HP+ is applying its expertise in health policy, finance, advocacy, governance, and clinical HIV (along the prevention and treatment cascade) to support children living with, or at risk of contracting, HIV from infancy through young adulthood. The project does this by:
- Applying our policy scan and action planning method to improve the pediatric HIV clinical cascade— identifying which policies, procedures, or guidelines need to be changed, which will have the biggest impact on improving HIV outcomes, and crafting action plans to achieve that change.
- Developing and applying models to quantify pediatric programmatic scale-up, including ART scale-up, transition from pediatric to adult care, viral load suppression estimates, and epidemiological trends.
- Estimating the costs, cost effectiveness, cost savings, and resources available for pediatric HIV interventions.
- Identifying programmatic efficiency gains across the pediatric clinical cascade.
- Designing and costing differentiated care models for children and adolescents.
- Assessing the resource implications of changing ART formulations (e.g., liquid to solid).
- Measuring and addressing stigma and discrimination of adolescents living with HIV in health facilities.
