AIDSFree partner IMA World Health strengthened community engagement through a team of “pediatric champions,” specifically religious leaders, youth leaders, and community health workers (CHWs), to increase knowledge, demand, and uptake of pediatric HIV services. These individuals represent a vital cadre for engaging communities, influencing perceptions, and ensuring that initiatives improve young people´s health outcomes. This poster provides an overview of the project.

Community Conservation among the Maasai: Mainstreaming HIV/AIDS in Natural Resource Management

Cover of Community Conservation among the Maasai

The Longido District in northern Tanzania—part of the traditional homeland of the Maasai people—stretches along the Kenyan border, from the slopes of Mt. Kilimanjaro in the east, to Lake Natron in the west. It is a rugged but beautiful region, dotted with parks and wildlife reserves, not far from the wide plains of Serengeti National Park and its endless herds of hooved animals. The climate ranges between arid to semi-arid, with low seasonal rainfall and severe drought conditions in recent years. For the Maasai, pastoralism has long been the predominant way of life, with young Maasai men traveling long distances away from their families in search of grazing areas and water sources. But in recent years, economic hardship has forced many Maasai to relocate in cities and towns, where greater interaction with urban populations has brought them in closer contact with a problem that plagues the entire country: HIV.

Transition of Management and Leadership of HIV Care and Treatment Programs to Local Partners

Assessing and strengthening countries' capacity to implement policies and manage public resources towards their development goals has become a key priority for donors working to transition management of development programs, such as HIV antiretroviral therapy (ART) programs, to country ownership. The purpose of this technical brief is to highlight the common elements of successfully transitioned programs, their approaches, and lessons learned to help PEPFAR program managers transition their programs to greater host country management.
