The key activities of the EGPAF Umbrella project are to develop the organizational and technical capacity of local, preferably indigenous, organizations and provide supportive supervision. Funds granted through EGPAF Umbrella to sub-partners will be used to provide a standard package of palliative care services, including support for health care worker salaries in accordance with PEPFAR guidance; training; infrastructure improvement; community mobilization activities; HIV counseling and testing; support for laboratory evaluation; prevention and treatment of opportunistic infections; positive prevention activities; expanded access to safe water; and malaria prevention interventions.
