With funding from the U.S. Agency for International Development, Pact has helped Namibia to make marked strides in its fight against HIV and AIDS, mainly by strengthening Namibian institutions that provide HIV services and helping various local responders to coordinate their efforts.
Pact's work in Namibia dates to 2006, when we began building the capacity of Namibian government ministries and community-based organizations. With Pact's help, local organizations have strengthened their planning, budgeting and managerial capacity – all of which are helping them to make critical, lasting improvements in people's lives in this small nation.
Today, Pact is working to reach and sustain HIV epidemic control among pregnant and breastfeeding women, adolescents, infants and children in Namibia. The Adolescents and Children HIV Incidence Reduction, Empowerment and Virus Elimination project, or ACHIEVE, is a five-year global effort that includes programming in Namibia. The project is funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development and implemented by a Pact-led consortium of top global HIV/AIDS partners, including Jhpiego, Palladium, No Means No Worldwide and WI-HER. These core partners are being supported by a network of global and local strategic resource partners. ACHIEVE focuses on priority PEPFAR countries across Africa, Southeast Asia and the Caribbean.
The ACHIEVE consortium works with USAID Missions, national governments and existing response partners to identify gaps in HIV prevention and treatment programming among target populations. Using best practices and expertise along with innovations, the project is addressing critical gaps to meet country-specific epidemic control goals. Learn more about ACHIEVE here.
