“Sticky linkage”: Latest evidence and new strategies
Satellite session at IAS 2019 | 21 July 2019, 08:00–10:00 | Mexico City, Mexico

What is needed to make linkage effective? How can we ensure our linkage approaches drive improved ART initiation and retention? How can we adapt these approaches for re-engagement of people who have been on treatment in the past but have fallen out of care? This session will address these questions through a differentiated service delivery lens.
