Health system resilience is the ability to prepare for, manage (absorb, adapt, and transform), and learn from shocks.
Multiple surveys conducted during the COVID-19 pandemic have documented the pandemic’s variable impact on the disruption of HIV prevention, care, and treatment services and the provision of related services for sexual and reproductive health, mental health, TB, and malaria.
The purpose of this survey is to understand the perceptions of providers and recipients of HIV care of the main drivers of HIV and related service disruptions in the 15 cities supported by the IAPAC/UNAIDS Fast-Track Cites project and what strategies helped to mitigate these disruptions. This will inform the development of a framework for resilient urban HIV responses in response to future crises.
Multi-stakeholder survey to synthesize lessons learned from COVID-19 disruptions in HIV service access and utilization that can inform a framework for resilient urban HIV responses in response to crises (i.e., pandemics)
