Person-centred care stakeholder consultations - What is the evidence supporting a person-centred care approach within the HIV response?

The stakeholder consultation series aims to provide a platform for exchange on the concept of person-centred care in the HIV response. The discussions, learnings and recommendations from the series will form the basis of a joint statement or publication on person-centred care. The purpose of this communication is to build common cause around the concept of person-centred care and how it can be further embedded within the HIV response. In particular, the purpose is to define the kind of guidance needed by different stakeholder groups to realize the potential of person-centred care.
