Elton John AIDS Foundation
Under a two-year award from the Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF)) from 2015-2017, EGPAF implemented the Reaching Adolescents in Urban Settings Project. The project was a collaboration between EGPAF, Ministries of Health, and CIDRZ. The project was jointly implemented in Lusaka, Zambia and Kisumu, Kenya. The project worked toward meeting the following objectives:
- Increase awareness of and generate demand for HIV/AIDS and sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services amongst adolescents.
- Increase the identification of HIV-positive adolescents.
- Increase the number of adolescents receiving care, treatment, and support for HIV/AIDS and SRH services.
- Increase the number of HIV-positive adolescents who are retained in treatment and virally suppressed.
