Project Details

This project provides comprehensive, community-based HIV Prevention, Linkage and Retention Services for Key Populations and Adolescent Girls and Young Women in eight regions across Tanzania including Dar es Salaam, Pwani, Mwanza, Mara, Simiyu, Kigoma, Kagera and Geita.

KVP include groups with elevated behavioral risk for HIV, comprising of female sex workers (FSW), people who inject drugs (PWID), and men who have sex with men (MSM). Priority populations include vulnerable adolescent girls and young women (AGYW) aged 15 to 29 years. ICAP at Columbia University is collaborating with the Government of Tanzania at national, regional, district and community levels and collaborates with HIV stakeholders including implementing partners, healthcare providers and community volunteers to deliver services to intended beneficiaries. This project is supported with funding from PEPFAR through the CDC.
