Rapid scale-up of antiretroviral therapy (ART) in the context of financial and health system constraints has resulted in calls to maximize efficiency in ART service delivery. Adopting differentiated care models for ART could potentially be more cost-efficient and improve outcomes. However, no study has comprehensively projected the cost savings across countries. In this journal article, published by the Journal of the International AIDS Society, Catherine Barker, Arin Dutta, and Kate Klein share projections of the potential reduction in facility-level costs and number of health workers needed when implementing two types of differentiated care models while attempting to reach 90-90-90 targets in 38 sub-Saharan African countries (2016 to 2020).
