GAP-f pDTG Task Team Resources
GAP-f is a WHO Network hosted within the Research for Health Department in the Science Division and was created to respond to the paediatric treatment gap. The GAP-f pDTG Task Team is a forum for coordination among partners involved in introduction of pDTG scored, dispersible tablets.
The GAP-f Task Team has developed resources, such as the pDTG Implementation Considerations for National Programmes, GAP-f's pDTG Partner Implementation Guidance (available in English, Spanish, French, Swahili, and Portuguese), which can be accessed below.
Through the CHAI-Unitaid Optimal Project, which aims to accelerate access to better HIV treatment options, CHAI and AfroCAB established the Optimal Community Advisory Board (CAB) with the goal of fostering engagement with civil society partners to co-develop product adoption strategies and improve understanding of and demand for new ARVs among PLHIV. The CAB includes representatives from a range of global and national PLHIV community and advocacy organizations. The CAB provides strategic direction and leadership to strengthen community engagement in project implementation, to foster demand generation, and to ensure that the CHAI-Unitaid project as a whole supports and complements the activities of the global HIV treatment community. Key pDTG resources developed by the CAB are highlighted below.
