Patient preferences for HIV treatment services

We’d like to share findings from a recently published discrete choice experiment (DCE) study we conducted Patient preferences for HIV service delivery models; a Discrete Choice Experiment in Kisumu, Kenya.

Patients placed greatest importance on treatment refill location and adherence support, followed by staff attitude. While differentiated service delivery models encourage community treatment group options, our results suggest strong preferences for treatment refills from health-centers or pharmacists over lay-caregivers or community members.
