The goal of this mechanism is to provide technical, financial and logistical support to improve program management and implementation capacity of the non-military uniformed services in Kenya. The project has 3 main objectives: a) Improve the capacity of the AIDS control units of the uniformed services departments b) Improve and expand activities to increase healthy behaviors among uniformed services personnel, families and surrounding communities c) improve and expand uniformed services facility-based TB and AIDS Prevention, care and treatment services.

Implementation of this project is by officers of the Uniformed Services agencies and Ministry of Medical Services clinical personnel. This ensures efficiency in service delivery and builds upon existing structures. The HIV services are complemented by other wrap-around services provided in these institutions.

ARIFU is a capacity-strengthening mechanism with a goal of transitioning these GoK partners to full ownership of the program at the end of the five-year project period. It has developed a strong training and mentorship program for the officers and service providers and is working at ensuring that ACUs in all regions can efficiently manage the programs.

Two vehicles were purchased in FY08 and four in FY10. All are four-wheel vehicles which are used for field work and supportive supervision to over 55 districts. Many project sites are hard-to-reach. One vehicle is assigned to each agency ie PATH, EGPAF, Police, KWS, NYS, AP for logistical support given the vehicle shortfalls within GoK.

Please note that target populations, geographic coverage, and M&E plans are addressed in budget code narratives.
