HIV/AIDS Care and Treatment

Speeches Shim

It is estimated that there are over 1.5 million people living with HIV/AIDS in Kenya, of whom 124,913 are children and adolescents living with HIV and 628,079 are children orphaned by AIDS.  USAID works through the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) to combat the HIV/AIDS epidemic in close partnership with the Government of Kenya. 

PEPFAR, launched in 2003, represents the largest U.S. Government investment in public health globally.  USAID’s HIV/AIDS programs in Kenya supports a wide variety of activities for HIV/AIDS prevention, care, and treatment.  These efforts have improved access to HIV/AIDS prevention, care, and treatment services for people across Kenya.  Country ownership and county leadership serve as core principles of the work in Kenya, and the U.S. Government is redoubling efforts to build country systems for sustainable impact.
