Kisumu West (KW) program aims to increase access to HIV services, including PMTCT, HTC, PWP, care and treatment. KW will endeavor to support 100% coverage of PMTCT interventions in ANC settings and 80% knowledge of HIV status among adults by 2012; which is in keeping with Kenyas PFIP. This will be achieved through integration of HIV services within the wider MOH services; and social mobilization to increase demand for HIV services. KW will expand HTC activities through multiple mutually-reinforcing and non-redundant methodologies.Stable patients will be cared for at lower-level health facilities. In addition, a one-stop shop for clients will be offered by linking together HIV, non-communicable and communicable disease services (including TB) among infected and affected individuals. These will reduce duplication and improve cost-efficiency of health workforce and management resources.To aid transition to country partners, KW will strengthen local institutions, including the District Health Management Team, through trainings, joint planning and support supervision. A strategic country-driven improvement of the health system to address a multiplicity of health issues, including HIV, will create an efficient, sustainable and cost-effective program.KW will work with MOH to build the capacity of community health workers to deliver services. This will strengthen referral systems, with a focus on reaching the most marginalized groups.KW procured 2 vehicles using FY09 and FY10 funds. These were needed to support logistics, transport laboratory/pharmaceutical commodities, and make site supervisory visits.Target populations, geographic coverage, and monitoring and evaluation plans are addressed in budget code narratives. This activity supports the GHI/LLC.
