HIV Clinical Services

Speeches Shim

With HIV prevalence among adults (15-49 years old) estimated at about 4.5 percent in 2019 and approximately 1.5 million people living with HIV, Kenya has made good progress in addressing the epidemic through focused interventions.  However, to sustain the progression of the national response, there is a need for interventions that can effectively address the varied nature of the epidemic across different counties while remaining focused on meeting national targets.  

To respond to this, USAID awarded three HIV clinical service programs for counties with high HIV burdens: Afya Kamilisha, Afya Nyota ya Bonde, and Afya Ziwani.  These projects are funded by the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and aim to increase access to and coverage of HIV prevention, care, and treatment services to achieve epidemic control.  These projects build on the work of PEPFAR’s AIDS, Population and HIV Integrated Assistance (APHIAplus) projects, which played a critical role in shaping the HIV response in Kenya.
