USAID’s Priority Populations, Integration, and Rights (PPIR) activities are responsible for improving access to comprehensive HIV services, including HIV prevention, testing, care and treatment and addressing social, structural and behavioral drivers for priority populations. PPIR provides technical leadership and support to Missions in effectively planning, implementing, and monitoring integrated, cross-cutting approaches to the HIV/AIDS response. Our work has a specific emphasis on reaching key populations, as well as priority populations including youth, orphans and vulnerable children (OVC), men, and adolescent girls and young women, as well as leading gender and gender-based violence programming. Our programming reaches priority populations through:

  • Designing and managing projects that support implementation and scale-up of country and regional programs to achieve PEPFAR goals and targets;
  • Providing technical and programmatic expertise to develop sound strategies, policy guidance, and plans for implementation of HIV/AIDS programs;
  • Participating on cross-cutting teams and collaborating closely with other USAID country offices and government agencies to plan, coordinate, and support service delivery programs for priority and key populations.
