Global Fund R10 - Impact
Reduction in stigma and discrimination against PLHIV, Increased access to HIV testing and counseling in the target Sub Counties, reduced mortality rate among PLHIV, Strengthened community linkages to other support services, Reduction in new born mortality rate and Reduced HIV infection rate among the new born. This is as a result of the services given to the clients by CHVs including ANC health talks at the facility, psychosocial support, adherence counselling, nutritional counselling, health education in community support groups and outreaches among other services.
Recent studies show that by December 2016, 68% (1,018,905) of PLHIV were on HIV treatment, hence a gap in achieving the 90% of PLHIV on treatment in the next 2 years. Routine viral load testing has not been scaled up to all health facilities providing ART and about 73% of the PLHIV on ART are viral load suppressed. Studies show less than 40% performance across the 90:90:90 cascade in some counties.
Based on this OGRA Foundation has won a new grant extending the program period to June 2019. The new program phase will support treatment for 320,786 PLHIV on ART in year, 1 319,652 in year 2 through support of PLHIV networks and CHVs. The category of PLHIV to benefit will include defaulters, newly identified HIV cases, HIV TB co-infected, Pregnant and Lactating PLHIV mothers, Adolescents and Youth (girls and young women).
