ICAP's CQUIN Learning Network Receives $24 Million from Gates Foundation
ICAP’s CQUIN, a learning network in 21 countries in Africa that shares innovations and best practices in HIV delivery, has received $24 million from the Gates Foundation to support the scale-up of its HIV programming. The network, launched with funding from Gates in 2017, supports ministries of health and their partners to offer high-quality differentiated service delivery models.
“Differentiated service delivery models vary the ‘when, where, who, and what’ of HIV service delivery to respond to different needs of individuals and to the contexts in which they live,” said Wafaa El-Sadr, MD, MPH, MPA, global director of ICAP. “CQUIN has supported ministries of health to move beyond a ‘one size fits all’ approach to HIV service delivery by providing a platform to learn from each other and co-create tools and resources that serve recipients of services.”
CQUIN will also continue to focus on models of HIV treatment that meet the specific needs of people established on treatment, and those with advanced HIV disease, tuberculosis and HIV, and HIV and non-communicable diseases, as well as support models of care for other groups that have faced challenges in engaging with health services.
