Partnerships are critical to reaching sustainable control of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Take a look below to read more about the Office of HIV/AIDS' projects and implementing partners.
The U.S. Government (USG) invests significant resources into multilateral institutions for policy and programmatic engagement and provision of technical assistance to achieve global health targets. The USAID Office of HIV/AIDS serves as USAID’s point of contact for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (GF) and UNAIDS, as well as provides financial management and programmatic oversight of HIV Global Fund technical assistance (GF TA), manages the USAID’s agreements with the Global Fund and UNAIDS, and supports donor coordination.
GHSC-PSM is implemented by Chemonics International and consortium partners. The project focuses on the safe, reliable supply of lifesaving medicines and diagnostics for HIV/AIDS, malaria, family planning and reproductive health, maternal, newborn and child health, and other health programs, including COVID-19. GHSC-PSM also strengthens countries' capacity to manage supply chain functions and ensure products are available to those in need when they need them.
ASAP is a three-year task order contract designed to rapidly prepare local organizations and governments to serve as prime partners for USAID’s PEPFAR programming in African countries. ASAP serves as a support option for existing or new local partners, e.g., conduct NUPAS or government risk assessments, capacity development technical assistance for financial systems, HR systems, PEPFAR reporting, and ensuring compliance with USAID requirements and performance. ASAP's prime partner is IntraHealth.
ACHIEVE is a five-year cooperative agreement that aims to reach and sustain epidemic control in pregnant and breastfeeding women, infants, children and youth through HIV prevention and mitigation, testing, and treatment services to achieve viral suppression. This mechanism capitalizes on USAID strengths in pediatric and youth programming, AGYW, OVC and community-based programming, and capacity building with local partners. Beyond PEPFAR, ACHIEVE is available to support the COVID-19 response, including emergency health response, strengthening global health security in affected countries, and health and social welfare systems support. The prime partner for ACHIEVE is Pact.
Data.FI is a five-year cooperative agreement that works across program populations and interventions to improve data quality, utilization, and analytics to facilitate rapid, efficient program improvement. Data.FI support for key COP solutions includes epidemic control rooms, optimizing and scaling EMRs, integrated data warehouses, digitized viral load tracking, client phenotyping, data systems and governance. Data.FI can enhance use of PEPFAR data, and leverage non-traditional data. Beyond PEPFAR, Data.FI is available to support the COVID-19 response, strengthening health systems and supporting monitoring, evaluation and learning efforts globally and in affected countries. The Data.FI consortium of leading digital and data analytics experts is led by the prime partner Palladium.
EpiC is a five-year cooperative agreement that helps meet or exceed PEPFAR targets for reaching adults, key, and priority populations by finding those who have not yet been identified as positive, linking HIV-positive clients to treatment, and keeping those on treatment virally suppressed. These mechanisms work with a range of stakeholders to ensure that host government health systems and host countries in general are able to maintain program gains with appropriately decreasing dependence on PEPFAR/USAID. Beyond PEPFAR, EpiC supports health systems, emergency health response, strengthening global health security in affected countries, and the COVID-19 response.
RISE is a five-year cooperative agreement that helps meet or exceed PEPFAR targets for reaching adults, key, and priority populations by finding those who have not yet been identified as positive, linking HIV-positive clients to treatment, and keeping those on treatment virally suppressed. These mechanisms work with a range of stakeholders to ensure that host government health systems and host countries in general are able to maintain program gains with appropriately decreasing dependence on PEPFAR/USAID. Beyond PEPFAR, RISE supports emergency health response, strengthening global health security in affected countries, health systems support, and the COVID-19 response.
*Note that RISE and EpiC are two separate five-year cooperative agreements to two different consortia with the same scope. The prime partner for RISE is JHPIEGO, and the prime partner for EpiC is FHI 360.
Right to Care (RTC) serves as the prime partner for the EQUIP consortium— a six-year cooperative agreement and a collaboration of leading African organizations—that includes Anova Health Institute, Maternal Adolescent and Child Health (MatCH) and Kheth'impilo ( based in South Africa), and Partners in Hope (based in Malawi). EQUIP is designed to leverage the resources within the consortium to provide timely responses to requests from USAID missions in high-priority PEPFAR countries. The EQUIP partners’ extensive experience and technical expertise providing comprehensive high quality HIV service delivery in high HIV prevalence countries ensures that interventions and solutions provided are scalable and achieve substantial impact towards the 95-95-95 goals. EQUIP supports both the PEPFAR response and leverages expertise in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.
Linkages across the Continuum of HIV Services for Key Populations Affected by HIV project (LINKAGES)
LINKAGES is a cooperative agreement (through December 2021) and the first USAID-funded project that works within the mandate to focus on HIV services specifically for key populations. Key populations are people who inject drugs, men who have sex with men, transgender persons, sex workers and prisoners. The prime partner for LINKAGES is FHI 360.
USAID is a proud implementer of the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief.
