TEGEMEZA is a 5-year HIV prevention, care and treatment program funded by The U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) through the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

Goal: Working in collaboration with the Ministry of Health, this project aims to implement and expand HIV prevention, care and treatment services in five counties of Central Kenya namely: Kiambu, Muranga, Nyandarua, Nyeri and Laikipia.

This includes adult and paediatric palliative care and support, adult and paediatric treatment (ART), prevention of mother to child transmission of HIV (PMTCT), HIV testing and counselling (HTC), prevention with positives (PwP) and TB/HIV collaborative work.

TEGEMEZA activities also include support for pharmaceutical and laboratory commodity systems, health management information systems (HMIS), and facility-community linkages. While the focus of support is at heath facility level, significant engagement with and technical assistance to management structures is critical, with this support provided to district and provincial health management teams previously, and now to county and sub-county health management teams to design, implement, and monitor these programs.
