Geospatial Targeting for HIV Programs using Modelbuilder
Track: Public Health
Authors: John Spencer
Model builder was used to overcome to more effectively implement HIV care and treatment programs as part of the US Presidential Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). The models developed allowed program planners to consider factors such as travel time to facility, barriers to care and facility staffing among others. Because the models rely on standardized PEPFAR reporting data, they can be employed with minimal modifications in many different countries around the world.
