New Series of HIV and AIDS Program Briefs

This World AIDS Day, EngenderHealth announces a new series of HIV and AIDS program briefs highlighting promising practices and lessons learned from our work. The briefs explore hallmarks of our programs, including strengthening health systems, developing human resources, engaging communities, and advocating for supportive policies. In nine countries, EngenderHealth partners with local clinics and community-based organizations to provide comprehensive HIV and AIDS prevention, care, and treatment services.

The first in the series is a set of five briefs on the AIDS, Population, and Health Integrated Assistance (APHIA II) Nyanza Project, which is based in Nyanza, Kenya. APHIA II is a holistic project to improve and expand HIV prevention, treatment, care, and support services, along with integrated reproductive health, maternal health, family planning, malaria, tuberculosis, and child health services.

The briefs in this series are:

APHIA II Nyanza is supported by the U.S. Agency for International Development and is managed by EngenderHealth, in collaboration with Kenya’s Ministry of Health. Other partners include: the Academy for Educational Development (AED), the Christian Health Association of Kenya, Inter Diocesan Christian Community Services, and PATH.

1 in 4 sexually active teenagers become infected with an STD every year, in the United States alone. Now, more than ever, we need to join together to fight this growing issue. As I read through your website, it is clear that you share the same passion for STD/STI awareness. We here, at, understand the importance of STD/STI prevention and treatments. If you could, please list us as a resource or host our social book mark button, it would be much appreciated. We can not reach every teenager, but together we can try.
If you need more information please mail me with the subject line as your URL.

Thnak You,
