HIV and AIDS

Eliminating HIV and AIDS

We build the capacities of public, private, and civil society partners to prevent, treat, and manage HIV and AIDS and build systems that deliver gender-responsive, quality HIV services that are adapted to the populations we serve. We build our partners’ ability to more effectively manage their medicines, finances, and information and put communities at the forefront of HIV prevention and response. Our technical teams guide policy reform by developing approaches to testing, care, and support that increase efficiencies and result in better person-centered care.

Our HIV and AIDS work helps to:

  • Identify people living with HIV and enroll them in treatment
  • Ensure greater country ownership of HIV programs
  • Integrate sustainable and cost-effective HIV and AIDS prevention, care, and treatment services
  • Provide consistently available, quality HIV medicines by improving the collection and use of pharmaceutical supply chain data for forecasting and purchasing
Under PEPFAR-funded projects, MSH teams have been employing index case testing as one strategy to reach the UNAIDS 90-90-90 targets. In index case testing, a person with confirmed HIV infection (an index case) is asked to contact family members (children, spouse, sexual partners, siblings, and parents) to invite them to be tested for HIV. Watch this webinar to learn more through three case studies from Ethiopia, Angola, and Malawi.
In Malawi, an innovative strategy called index case testing is helping more people learn their HIV status by supporting HIV-positive clients in identifying family members and partners who may be at risk of infection and inviting them to be tested. With funding from PEPFAR through the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, MSH implemented this strategy in Malawi, reaching more than 20,000 family members served through 90 health facilities across the country. This video shares the story of the Justin family, who benefited from this initiative
