Jhpiego

Solution

Jhpiego, a global health nonprofit and Johns Hopkins University affiliate, will scale up a highly effective HIV prevention strategy—a daily dose of an antiretroviral pill for highly vulnerable individuals that reduces their chances of contracting the virus.

"Like oral contraceptives, PrEP only works when taken, so it requires a commitment on the part of the client," she added. "That poses a challenge and an opportunity to develop approaches to client adherence and retention that work best for the individual and the community."

Jhpiego will be joined in this new project by the National AIDS and STIs Control Program (NASCOP), International Center for Reproductive Health Kenya (ICRHK), Population Services Kenya (PSK), and Avenir Health.
