Reaching the Three 90s: Establishing a Sustainable Model for HIV Prevention, Care, and Treatment in Angola
The Health for All (Saúde para Todos) Project in Angola, funded by the US Agency for International Development (USAID) and led by Population Services International (PSI), was launched in January 2017 to support the government’s efforts to increase quality health service delivery in the country. The project targeted major improvements in health through sustainable approaches and increased country ownership. Delivered in partnership with MSH and local partners Rede Mulher Angola and the MENTOR Initiative, the project delivered a package of health interventions to bring malaria, HIV and AIDS, family planning, and reproductive health services to select municipalities and provinces throughout the country, reaching the poorest and most vulnerable citizens of Angola.
In line with Angola’s National Institute for the Fight Against AIDS and the U.S. President's Emergency Plan For AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) objectives, MSH supported the government of Angola to establish a sustainable model for providing high-quality HIV and AIDS services. Between 2017-2019, the Health for All project improved the quality of service delivery across the entire continuum of care, from prevention to linkage to care and treatment to viral suppression. Through this work, HFA supported the government in its efforts to achieve sustainable control of the HIV epidemic and reach the ambitious 90-90-90 goals of the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS): 90% of PLHIV diagnosed, 90% of diagnosed PLHIV on ART, and 90% of PLHIV currently on ART virally suppressed.
