In this project NAP+ is committed to meet 100% linkages for those who are get newly tested HIV positive.


Project is being implemented in community settings to enhance its targets testing approach including scale up of index case testing, HIV self-testing and community ART for epidemic control. The community linkage between female sex workers and their clients plus women engaged in transactional sex peer networks, community level DIC providers and public laboratory facilities will enhance the HIV case identification, linkage to treatment and tracking of viral load suppression towards achieving the UNAIDS and PEPFAR goal of 90-90-90 and epidemic control by 2020.
