What is DSD?
Differentiated service delivery (DSD), previously referred to as differentiated care, is a client-centred approach that simplifies and adapts HIV services across the cascade to reflect the preferences, expectations and needs of people living with and vulnerable to HIV, while reducing unnecessary burdens on the health system.
The World Health Organization has recommended DSD for HIV treatment since 2015. Published evidence from the past decade shows that DSD can:
√ Enhance client outcomes, including quality of care √ Ensure that the health system functions efficiently √ Enable the health system to refocus resources to those most in need.
