This five-year project, funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development, seeks to support and increase access to high-quality, comprehensive HIV care and treatment services (including pediatric and adolescent HIV care) within the former Central Equatoria and Western Equatoria States in South Sudan.
The project, which provides support to 17 primary health care clinics and two clinics in protection of civilians camps, is designed to achieve the following four results:
1) strengthen state- and county-level Ministry of Health capacity to effectively plan, manage, implement and coordinate HIV programs, including services for HIV testing and counseling, prevention of mother-to-child transmission and antiretroviral therapy;
2) develop institutional and human resource capacity in the provision of comprehensive HIV services;
3) provide high-quality, integrated, comprehensive HIV services that will reduce new infections and keep HIV-positive patients healthy; and
4) strengthen systems for monitoring and evaluation of HIV services.
