Strengthening the capacity to scale up HIV prevention, care, and treatment programs in South Sudan under the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief
This project builds on the achievements of IntraHealth International’s previous Preventing and Reducing the Impact of HIV in South Sudan project. The new project is intended to strengthen the quality and delivery of HIV prevention, care, and treatment programs (including HIV testing and counseling, linkages to care and treatment, ART access, and pediatric HIV services) through provision of sustainable capacity building support and mentorship to South Sudan’s Ministry of Health and implementing partners.
The project will be implemented in Central and Eastern Equatoria, focusing on areas with the highest HIV prevalence rates. The project will achieve the following objectives: expand HIV testing and counseling; strengthen linkages to care and treatment; improve access to ART services for pregnant and breastfeeding mothers, their partners, and children; strengthen pediatric HIV testing, care, and treatment within a family‐centered approach; and support the development of a regulatory framework to strengthen and standardize clinical practice.
