Working towards reducing new HIV infections and HIV prevalence

PS Kenya implements various social behavior change campaigns to reduce risky sexual practices among at risk and vulnerable populations. Evidence-based behavior change communication techniques promotes correct and consistent use of our products and to reduce high-risk behaviors. Campaigns are delivered through innovative and appropriate channels to reach those most at risk.

Kenya has made significant strides in reducing new HIV infections. The recent efforts are geared towards identification of the positives and linking them to treatment immediately as well as ensuring those on treatment are achieving viral suppression in line with the UNAIDS call for 90 90 90. The goal of PS Kenya’s HIV Programme is to use evidence to develop interventions that contribute to the reduction of HIV incidence. For more than 20 years, PS Kenya has worked to prevent HIV infection and remains the leader in implementing innovative and evidence-based HIV prevention programs in Kenya. PS Kenya has worked closely with the National AIDS and STI Control Program (NASCOP) and ¬-National AIDS Control Council (NACC) to support efforts in HIV prevention and treatment over the years.

PS Kenya is also working with the private sector to increase affordable and sustainable quality HIV Care and Treatment (HCT) services in the private sector in Kenya as well as continue to promote healthy behavior through condom social marketing and SBCC on condom use, HIV testing and treatment as well as male circumcision.

CONDOM USE CAMPAIGNS

This campaign focused on increasing condom use amongst persons engaging in specific higher risk behaviors; for example, concurrent sexual partnerships are tackled through the – ‘Wacha Mpango wa Kando, Epuka Ukimwi ‘(Stop ‘spare wheels’ relations – Avoid HIV) and ‘Weka Condom Mpangoni’ (‘put a condom in that plan’)campaign.Condom negotiations among youth are targeted through the “Kuwa True” and previously “Nakufeel” campaigns.

HIV CARE AND TREATMENT IN THE PRIVATE SECTOR

PS Kenya’s vision is to support the development of sustainable quality HIV care and treatment in the private sector. To this end, PS Kenya has been working with a network of 119 private provider ART (antiretroviral treatment) sites, 91 PMTCT (prevention of mother to child transmission) sites and 350 HTC (HIV testing and counselling) sites from both the Gold Star and Tunza networks to address these challenges with a focus on build provider capacity to offer quality HIV services through Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) mentorship.

As part of the sustainability plan, PS Kenya also continued to support the franchise private providers to address sustainable private sector supply chain for drugs and diagnostics. In addition, we are working towards building a private sector where clients or insurance are willing to take on part of or all the costs.
