Additionally, the successful applicant will work closely with the Ministry of Health (MOH) to strengthen the technical capacity of Regional Performance Monitoring Teams (RPMTS) and District Health Teams (DHTs) for an effective public health decentralized HIV/AIDS response. Expected outcomes include improved access, coverage and quality of HIV services ensuring 90% of people living with HIV (PLHIV) know their status; 90% of people diagnosed with HIV infection receive antiretroviral therapy (ART); and 90% of those on treatment are virally suppressed.
