Abt Associates has worked globally to develop, implement, and monitor high-impact HIV programs across broad areas of the epidemic and clinical cascade. Abt’s innovative approaches support local and national government in developing coordinated and sustainable responses – where working hand-in-hand with a broad range of parastatal, civil society, and private sector partners is critical to achieving the “90-90-90” targets.
Abt contributes to the HIV response through multiple PEPFAR-supported global and bilateral projects designed to expand access to HIV prevention, testing, and treatment services— the projects pursue diverse activities that improve linkage to care, broaden the array of multi-sectoral and integrated service delivery options, and strengthen interventions to ensure people living with HIV are retained in care and can live positively with the disease long term.
Can Frontier Technologies Accelerate Impact in Preventing HIV Transmission?
Join us for a 2018 International AIDS Conference satellite event as we explore how emerging technologies such as blockchain offer the potential to enhance HIV service delivery and quality care for people living with HIV. Whether it’s providing protected and accessible medical records, or improving the efficiency and targeting of donor funding, blockchain can be a powerful tool for social good.
Abt Associates, together with partners from IrisGuard, North Star Alliance, PEPFAR, Nike Girl Effect and more, will discuss piloting blockchain solutions, developing cross-sector partnerships and identifying new opportunities to scale programming.
Panel 1: What are the challenges associated with delivering HIV services, and how can they be solved with blockchain and frontier technologies?
Panel 2: What is blockchain technology, and how can it be used to reach the most vulnerable groups in the field?
Dr. Jane Thomason, Senior Global Advisor, Digital Transformations, Abt Associates, and Lauren Weir, Associate at Abt, will moderate the discussions.
