The Clinton Health Access Initiative, Inc.

Although there has been a remarkable decline in new HIV infections over the last two decades, evidence show that there has been a stagnation in the reduction of new cases globally since 2018. It is also evident that despite the existence and implementation of multiple effective prevention interventions, there has been an increase in new HIV infections among certain geographies and populations. Thus, scaling up access to safe, effective prevention options that meet the needs of those at high risk of HIV is essential to eliminating new HIV infection and reaching epidemic control. However, various barriers – individual and systemic –persist, limiting the impact of proven HIV prevention interventions, especially in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). CHAI is currently working with Ministries of Health in SSA and a broad range of partners globally, to accelerate the development, introduction, and scale up of HIV prevention interventions. CHAI is leveraging, documenting, and sharing lessons from supporting the scale up of VMMC and oral PrEP to strengthen HIV prevention program integration, outcomes, and sustainability and to advance planning for CAB-LA and the dual prevention pill (DPP) introduction.
