Prevention and treatment for Key and Priority Populations: During the reporting period, a total of 13,510 Key populations and 7,756 Priority Population received a minimum package of individual layered prevention services. Services provided included HIV prevention and care awareness, risk reduction counselling, condom, PEP, Screening for PrEP, TB, STI, GBV, HEP B, HIV testing and linkage to care, and adherence support. Of the KPs and PPs served, 93% were screened for TB, 99% screened for STIs and 89% received condoms. A total of 9238 and 14,587 received PrEP and Post GBV care respectively. A total of 1055 KPs and PPs were HIV positive and linked to ART. This performance was attributed to the implementation of high-yielding strategies including moon light outreaches conducted at hotspots and the strong engagement of KP-Led CSOs during service delivery and demand creation.
We mentored outreach teams on same-day ART initiation; enhance treatment literacy for KP/their families (Undetectable=Untransmissible (U=U) messaging), peer navigation, monitoring systems; support pre-appointment reminders, root cause analysis (RCA), weekly data reviews to identify missed visits; multi-month dispensing for HIV+ KP and DSDM (CDDP at DICs, ART refills, VL bleeding at hot spots) while ensuring safety/confidentiality; intensive adherence counselling for the non-suppressed by trained peer navigators. A total of 1055 HIV positive KPs and PPs were served on ART, of these 99% had a valid viral load test and 97% were virally suppressed.
