This is being achieved through the following seven objectives:

  • Objective 2: Provide prevention of mother to child transmission of HIV services leading to the knowledge of status of pregnant women, provision of ART to HIV positive pregnant women and provision of infant prophylaxis to their infants.
  • Objective 3: Support the provision of high quality HIV Care and Treatment services to new HIV positive adults and children and current adults and children.
  • Objective 4: Provide quality and safe Laboratory Services to 155 supported sites.
  • Objective 5: Strengthen quality ART commodity supply chain services across 155 health facilities.
  • Objective 6: Improve program performance though robust Strategic Information and Quality Improvement systems at facility, sub-county and county levels.
  • Objective 7: Transition and Sustainability.

 

The primary focus of the AMPATHPlus project is to identify, link, treat, and retain HIV+ clients within the identified 155 MOH service delivery sites across the 12 sub counties in Kakamega County.
