USAID Community HIV Care and Treatment Activity
This community based activity will expand access to comprehensive HIV prevention, care and treatment services by reinforcing the role of communities in the delivery of comprehensive clinical and non-clinical differentiated care services.
Technical assistance to local government authorities will enable the Government of Ethiopia (GOE) and its local institutions to effectively partner with community based organizations to deliver high impact community based interventions.
The project will work with the host government, civil society organizations, and other community based organizations to more effectively plan, deliver, and optimize high impact prevention, care, and treatment interventions. This cooperative agreement award will target individuals infected by HIV and at high risk of HIV infection, such as families of index cases living in priority (scale-up) woredas as defined by PEPFAR Ethiopia to deliver quality community based services. Widowed and divorced people who are at high risk of acquiring HIV but are not reached by other projects will also be addressed by this activity.
This Activity will accelerate and sustain HIV epidemic control in Ethiopia through the delivery of high-impact community based HIV services.
