Description

FREE FOR AIDS 2018 DELEGATES

The PHIA Project measures the reach and impact of HIV programmes through national surveys in 14 countries. Each population-based HIV impact assessments survey offers household-based HIV counselling and testing conducted by survey staff, with return of results. The surveys ask questions about access to preventive care and treatment services for adults and children. The results measure national and regional progress toward UNAIDS’ 90-90-90 goals, and guide policy and funding priorities. This project is PEPFAR funded and led by ICAP at Columbia University in partnership with the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the ministry of health in each country. This session will review and compare data from the PHIA surveys about the performance characteristics of national HIV rapid test algorithms across diverse contexts in Africa. ICAP will facilitate discussion with key stakeholders on lessons learned, how to address key gaps and implications for HIV testing programmes.
