Reaching Impact, Saturation and Epidemic Control (RISE)

Project Overview

RISE, a five-year global project funded by the US President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and the US Agency for International Development (USAID), supports countries in achieving and maintaining epidemic control by 2024 by working with stronger local partners capable of managing and achieving results through sustainable, self-reliant, and resilient health systems. Led by Jhpiego, RISE’s contributions will lead to fewer new HIV infections, decreased HIV-related morbidity and mortality, and increased quality of life for people living with HIV.

RISE is ready to mobilize our in-country teams to help USAID achieve country operational plan targets across the HIV prevention, care, and treatment cascade. As a core partner, MSH leads the project’s foundational work on health systems strengthening for HIV services by working with stakeholders at all levels of the health care system to identify needs and mobilize resources to protect people from HIV and improve their health.

Under the RISE Consortium, MSH provides strategic technical assistance in:

  • Health governance and policy
  • Health financing
  • Commodities and supply chain management
  • Human resources for health
  • Health information systems
  • Organizational capacity of local implementing partners and community-based organizations
