Failure to link HIV/AIDS care and start antiretroviral therapy in a timely manner leads to poor health outcomes in people lving with HIV in Sub-Saharan Africa. A systematic approach is needed to identify barriers to appropriate care and treatment and to design, implement, and evaluate interventions that address these barriers. The proposed study will follow an implementation science framework to measure and overcome barrieers to care and treatment at both the individual and health system levels, and will result in an intervention package that is scalable and rapidly deployable.
