PICT National Implementation Models

By Tej Nuthulaganti | 15 Oct, 2010

Dear All,

Aside from the WHO/UNAIDS Manual on Provider Initiated Counselling and Testing in Health Facilities, is there other literature on models of PICT national scale-up and roll-out that you would recommend?

In South Africa, the Department of Health is looking to implement PICT at all levels of the health system. Other country models would be most useful to learn from successes/challenges.

Warm regards,
Tej

Dear Tej

URC has been working closely with the DoH in developing a PICT model. We considered similar guidelines and models from Botswana, Kenya ,Tanzania as well as outside the region. The HIV counselling and testing guidelines were released in April this year and they outline the PICT model adopted by SA. URC has also worked with the DoH in developing specific PICT implementation guidelines and an implementation plan to scale up PICT.

Hi Tej, All,

AIDSTAR One recently published a matrix of PICT review that may be of interest to you: http://www.aidstar-one.com/sites/default/files/AIDSTAR-One_provider_initiated...

And you can find 30+ national HIV and AIDS treatment guidelines here: http://www.aidstar-one.com/treatment-documents

You can also find some very relevant presentations on this from the 2008 HIV/AIDS Implementers' Meeting: http://www.kaisernetwork.org/health_cast/hcast_index.cfm?display=detail&hc=2802

And the CDC global health programs provides the following resources: http://www.hiv.gov.gy/edocs/cdc_tl_types_ct.pdf
> A 2 pager on types of counseling and testing

They probably have more if you search here: http://www.cdc.gov/globalhealth/ and http://www.cdc.gov/globalaids/

Best, Sophie
