people who gained improved access to health services last year because of Pact
Throughout sub-Saharan Africa, Eastern Europe and Asia, Pact and our local partners are stemming the spread of HIV and improving the lives of people affected by the disease.
We’re employing state-of-the-art prevention and treatment standards, strengthening public health systems, and building the capacity of local nonprofits fighting HIV. Our integrated, holistic approach is also taking on problems that contribute to the epidemic, including poverty, stigma and marginalization.
Because of Pact’s work, in Ukraine women living with HIV are starting small businesses to better support their families. In Ethiopia, children are learning the basics of HIV prevention just as they are reading and math. In Nigeria, mothers are receiving treatment to prevent transmission to their babies. In Indonesia, local HIV organizations are reaching more people. In Tanzania, we’re supporting kids clubs for children affected by HIV and AIDS.
Much of our work focuses on orphans and vulnerable children and key populations for HIV, including people who inject drugs, prisoners, sex workers and their partners, and men who have sex with men.
Pact is also an implementing partner in Linkages Across the Continuum of HIV Services for Key populations Affected by HIV (LINKAGES for short), PEPFAR and USAID’s first global project dedicated to key populations and their sexual partners. We’re proud to be part of the LINKAGES coalition, which is accelerating the world’s response to the disease.
