Community-based models for HIV treatment and care have shown promise in some sub-Saharan countries, especially for improving patient outcomes and increasing the sustainability of the overall program. The Health Policy Project, in collaboration with the National AIDS and STI Control Programme, reviewed the state of evidence for implementing community-based approaches to care and treatment in Kenya. While some of the evidence suggests that such models can be applicable and beneficial, more data and Kenya-specific evaluations are required before concrete recommendations can be made. This brief serves a research agenda for Kenya in this regard.
