Community Models of HIV Care (CMoC)
In order to provide an acceptable level of health care for the ever-increasing number of people on antiretroviral therapy (ART), delivery of health care has to move from overburdened health facilities into the communities that they support. Simplification and decentralization of ART delivery for stable patients will differ amongst countries/settings and often involves non-clinicians such as peer educators and patients themselves. This dossier consists of:
- Peer-reviewed publications describing the Community ART Groups (CAGs) that were first piloted in MSF-supported programs in Mozambique
- Peer-reviewed publications describing and analyzing the ART Adherence Clubs that have been organized in Khayelitsha, S.A.
- A Powerpoint (with voiceover) and article by Bemelmans el al (TMIH, 2014) that assess CAGs, Clubs, and 2 other models of care: appointment spacing for clinical and drug refill visits in Malawi and community ART distribution points in DRC.
Additional information on CMoC, in the form of a toolkit and advocacy documents, can be found here in the CMoC project on this SAMU website.
