Challenge

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the world, but no one is more impacted than the 13,000 vulnerable People living with HIV that we serve. As governments managed the spread of the virus, these essential life-saving HIV/SRHR services are being interrupted. This has become a serious threat to the hard-won gains in access and outcomes for some of the world's most vulnerable, marginalised and poorest populations. This project will serve more that 13,000 most vulnerable and marginalised Ugandans.

Solution

AMS provides access to HIV prevention, care, ARVS, other essential medicines for opportunistic infections and psychosocial support. Community distribution of supplies that include ARVS as well as adherence support meetings, prevention of mother to child HIV transmission through Ultrasound scan services, medicines for opportunistic infections, Nutrition support and counselling, Peers support to support young people to attain viral load suppression will be supported.

Long-Term Impact

The Long term impact will be the contribution to HIV Epidemic control and ending HIV/AIDS! This targets and is in line with the UNAIDS 95-95-95 goals by 2030 of having 95% of HIV Positive people knowing their HIV status, 95% of those who know their HIV status accessing ARVS and being retained in care and 95 of those retained in care virally suppressed .
