In 2017, Project HOPE, along with partners, began implementing a community based program that is expanding access to comprehensive HIV prevention, care and treatment services in Ethiopia.

The five-year program, Ethiopia Community HIV Care and Treatment, funded by PEPFAR through USAID, aims to contribute to the UNAIDS 90-90-90 goal of epidemic control in Ethiopia. The program will reach more than 200 priority districts with a variety of services including: 

  • Providing targeted HIV testing services to priority populations with integrated referral linkages for health and other socioeconomic services  
  • Strengthening community based HIV/AIDS case management with individualized action plans
  • Improving adherence to treatment including tracking and reengaging those lost to follow up
  • Building the capacity of local organizations and systems to provide high impact HIV/AIDS prevention, care and treatment services at the community level
  • Increasing data availability with improved use for decision making by community health services

This program will target 75,267 individuals with HIV testing and reach 165,000 people living with HIV with care. 

In addition, Project HOPE is also partnering in the USAID funded 5-year Transform Health in Developing Regions program focusing on  reproductive, maternal, neonatal and child health. Project HOPE is leading the neonatal and child health component of the project as well as the establishment of centers for Comprehensive Emergency Obstetric and Newborn Care  interventions and will leverage its Gifts-in-Kind and volunteer programs to ensure effective program implementation.

The program will:

  • Increase numbers of healthy mothers with successful birth outcomes
  • Expand access and uptake of family planning services
  • Increase numbers of healthy newborns
  • Achieve sustained gains in ending preventable child and maternal deaths
