The APHIA II-Nyanza Project

In Kenya’s Nyanza Province, EngenderHealth and our partners worked to improve and expand sustainable HIV and tuberculosis (TB) prevention, treatment, care, and support services, along with integrated reproductive health, safe motherhood, family planning, malaria, and selected child survival services. The project, know as APHIA (AIDS, Population, and Health Integrated Assistance) II Nyanza was funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). It brought together five internationally recognized organizations under the leadership of EngenderHealth: the Academy for Educational Development (AED), the Christian Health Association of Kenya (CHAK), the International Training and Education Center for Health (I-TECH), Inter Diocesan Christian Community Services (IDCCS), and PATH. APHIA II Nyanza supported Kenya's Ministry of Health, as well as faith-based and community-based organizations, and coordinates with other agencies working in the province, such as the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, to reach its goal to reduce the risk of HIV transmission and the fertility rate in Nyanza by:

  • Improving and expanding sustainable facility-based services for HIV, TB, reproductive health, family planning, malaria and maternal child health
  • Improving and expanding civil society activities to increase healthier behaviors, including prevention programs that target at-risk populations
  • Linking health services to the community
  • Improving home and community support programs for people and families infected and affected by HIV and AIDS, including orphans and other vulnerable children
  • Reducing the stigma associated with HIV
