JHPIEGO was one of five partners recently selected to expand counseling and testing services to reach target populations in a variety of settings.

ACTIVITIES AND EXPECTED RESULTS:

In FY 20O7, JHPIEGO will institute confidential counseling and testing services in the workforce in both private and public institutions. JHPIEGO will design workplace HIV and AIDS programs that respond to individual companies' needs and fulfill the goals of this project. Management, union members, individual employees, and family members will be targeted. JHPIEGO will work to ensure that confidential counseling and rapid testing services focusing on risk reduction, will be accessible to all workers and their partners in selected sites. JHPIEGO will also incorporate stigma reduction strategies and issues of sexual violence and prevention for positives. The expected results under this objective are: 1) Workplace HIV and AIDS policies developed and disseminated; 2) Counseling and testing sites established and running; 3) Stigma surrounding HIV and AIDS reduced in and out of the workplace; 4) Prevention message dissemination strategies developed and sustained; 5) Peer education programs developed and sustained and;6) Establish linkages to care, treatment and other interventions.

These activities will directly support PEPFAR 2-7-10 goals.
