Utilize This Offer
This Activity will take to scale interventions that have been known to work in ensuring that those that are HIV negative stay negative, and those living with HIV, but have not yet been identified, are found and linked to treatment.
The project will also work closely with clinical implementing partners and the government to scale up recency testing, which quickly identifies those newly infected with HIV and has proven to be effective in stemming the spread of the virus.
