From 2016 to 2018, the USAID-funded Strengthening High Impact Interventions for an AIDS-free Generation Project assisted a broad consortium of Kenya-based partners to create a public-private alliance (PPA) among private providers in Nairobi County aimed at increasing the availability of high-quality ART services for children, adolescents, and young people. The PPA, which included the National AIDS and STI Control Programme, the Kenya Pediatrics Association, and the Kenya Healthcare Federation, trained more than 135 nurses and clinical officers representing 31 separate private clinics, facilitated government supply of HTS and ART commodities, and connected clinics to ongoing clinical mentorship.
