Along the Road Toward an HIV-Free Kenya
Strengthen health facilities’ services for HIV care, treatment, and prevention.
Red Cross of Kenya, along with The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria
2012 – 2019
This project has addressed AIDS-related mortality and the rate of new HIV infections in parts of Kenya with a high HIV burden—specifically, Suna West and East, Rongo, Awendo, Nyakach, Seme, and Gem subcounties. Working under the Red Cross of Kenya, CMMB staged community prevention programs, advocated for voluntary medical male circumcision and promoted and supported HIV counseling and testing, screened for sexually transmitted infections, and provided services for prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV. CMMB has also provided integrated services for malaria, tuberculosis, and maternal, child, and reproductive health in rural communities. Toward sustainability, we have consistently trained and mentored Kenyan health providers in technical areas and in the skills critical to managing a health system: information systems, finance, and administration.
