Tanzania

Tanzania is a hub of commerce and migration, and the country as a whole has made great strides in reducing HIV, as evidenced by the recent THIS HIV population-based survey implemented by ICAP. However, key and hard-to-reach populations are still at increased risk. ICAP partners with the Ministry of Health, Community Development, Gender, Elderly, and Children to improve HIV prevention, care, and treatment for these populations, and to explore innovative ways of offering services and linking individuals to care.
