AHF Kenya has a prevention program which works in collaboration with the Ministry of Health for HIV Primary Prevention including Adolescent and Youth Programs, PMTCT, testing, and condom education and distribution.
AHF Kenya’s strategic partners include the national and county governments, the Ministry of Health throughh NASCOP and NACC, civil society organizations including NEPHAK, KANCO, KELIN, HENNET among others.
AHF Kenya also supports a multi-pronged prevention program that includes strategic and targeted free HIV testing and counselling which allows the team to identify people living with HIV who are out of care and link them to services. More than 1,000,000 people have been tested for HIV since 2009 through AHF Kenya’s rapid testing program, and over 3 million condoms were distributed through local outreach and safer sex promotions. We have been able to support PMTCT interventions through the peer model by supporting mentor mother who play an important role in the elimination of mother to child HIV and syphilis transmission. The adolescent and young person’s mentorship and HIV prevention program has been implemented.
The HIV treatment program provides HIV management and treatment as per the Kenyan treatment guidelines including provision of ARVs, management of opportunistic infections, lab monitoring, and STI management.
In Kenya approximately 1.4 million people are living with HIV with a 4.2% national prevalence, an estimated 41,416 new HIV infections which reflects a 44% reduction of new infections. HIV related deaths have significantly reduced over the years due to the increase in number of people accessing treatment. Out of the 1.4 million Kenyans living with HIV, approximately 1,160,479 (1,087,511 adults and 72,968 children) were on antiretroviral therapy, representing an estimated treatment coverage of 80% among adults (68% among children) as at 2019.
