Resource Type:Report
Short Desc:This literature review supports the effort to strengthen analytical approaches to provincial and district health system capacities to support HIV services by providing a rationale for the core domains of assessment, and by identifying certain methodologies and contextual factors to consider when designing the assessment tool. The authors reviewed more than 40 sources on health systems strengthening, specifically for HIV services and related areas, and discussed related issues with health systems experts (Annex 3). This document summarizes their findings and recommendations, and includes an annotated bibliography (Annex 1) and a detailed table that describes the main tools reviewed (Annex 2). This literature review lays a solid foundation for developing a rapid assessment tool for provincial and district health system capacity to sustain HIV care and treatment services.
