1000 new grants and donors
The PEPFAR Community led monitoring program is funded through the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). One of the goals of PEPFAR in Ethiopia is to support efforts to achieve HIV epidemic control through implementation of evidence-based interventions to drive progress in HIV prevention, care and treatment and ultimately, save lives.
CLM is key to ensuring availability, access to, and delivery of quality HIV care and services. CLM will empower patients and communities to seek out this information, increase health literacy, expand engagement with health service delivery, support demand creation, and demand accountability from the health system to improve and deliver these services.
