The Zimbabwean Ministry of Health and Child Care updated its Operational and Service Delivery Manual for the Prevention, Care and Treatment of HIV in Zimbabwe in December 2022. Chapter 2 covers the application of DSD across the HIV cascade from testing to viral suppression. This updated manual also includes DSD for people not yet established on treatment as well as integration of other medical needs into DSD models and DSD for different specific populations. The Consolidated HIV and AIDS Job Aide was developed to accompany the previous (2016) version of the manual and includes checklists, clinical algorithms and educational tools to support implementation.
The Ministry released Rapid Guidance on HIV Service Delivery in COVID-19 Context on 26 March 2020. This aims to ensure continuity of HIV services while mitigating risk for COVID-19 and includes specific guidance on multi-month antiretroviral therapy dispensation (MMD), as well as alterations to prevention services. Its job aide for healthcare workers, COVID-19 and HIV (April 2020), supports the guidance document and suggests telephonic and social messaging for treatment monitoring and psychosocial support.
