World AIDS Day (1 December) commemorates the significant strides made in scientific advances, programmatic achievements, and advocacy successes that are improving the lives of those living with HIV and AIDS. World AIDS Day also serves to reinvigorate those who are committed to working tirelessly to achieve an AIDS-free generation. This year's UNAIDS theme 'Hands up for #HIV prevention' emphasises different aspects of HIV prevention and what it means for specific populations and people living with HIV.
3ie thematic windows on HIV prevention
3ie is funding several studies on various aspects of HIV and AIDS prevention through three different thematic windows. These include HIV Self-Testing, Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision and Integration of HIV Services.
3ie has funded 5 pilot interventions and their impact evaluations on integrating HIV services with other health services in 3 Sub-Saharan African countries, including on integration of community maternal, newborn and child health services with prevention of mother-to-child HIV transmission, using community health workers to enhance retention in care, and improving adherence to antiretroviral therapy in Tanzania.
