Advancing HIV & AIDS Epidemic Control Activity
Through the USAID-funded Advancing HIV & AIDS Epidemic Control (AHEC) Activity in South Sudan, IntraHealth is working with the government to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of the country’s efforts toward HIV epidemic control. Applying a layered approach with local organizations and PEPFAR implementing partners, the South Sudanese government, and local communities, the AHEC Activity builds local capacity and resilience and adapts evidence-based HIV prevention, care, and treatment interventions for people living with HIV.
Project activities include identifying HIV-positive clients (especially those who do not know their status), providing them with life-saving antiretroviral therapy, supporting continuity in their treatment, and supporting adherence for clients whose treatment has been interrupted, in an effort to ensure HIV viral suppression to reduce AIDS-related deaths and further transmission of the virus.
