IMA World Health is a non-profit, faith-based organization that offers extensive expertise implementing programs to address integrated health systems strengthening, maternal and child health, neglected tropical diseases, malaria, HIV, non-communicable diseases, and sexual and gender based violence programs in some of the most challenging and post-conflict settings throughout Africa, Asia, and the Caribbean.

Corus International’s dedicated experts around the globe work together to bring life-saving aid and long-term hope to even the most fragile corners of the world and in the most challenging of circumstances. We connect disciplines, approaches and people because we know that the more collaboration we can efficiently achieve, the wider, more systemic impact we can create.

Program activities will aim to diagnose persons infected with HIV, provide life-saving antiretroviral (ARV) therapy for persons living with HIV (PLHIV), and support retention and adherence to ensure HIV viral suppression to reduce AIDS-related deaths.
Two key objectives are 1) to increase prevention, care, treatment, and retention services for at-risk men, women, children, and key populations, and 2) strengthen the capacity of local partners to prepare them to receive prime funding. AHEC will be required to achieve South Sudan’s annual 90/90/90 targets.
