The Sauti project, led by Jhpiego in partnership with with EngenderHealth, Pact and the National Institute for Medical Research-Mwanza, provides a community-based service to bring HIV medication to clients who have been taking ART for at least six months, report good adherence and show minimal levels of the virus in their blood or suppressed viral load. The initiative is part of the government of Tanzania’s commitment to provide quality health services to its citizens, especially those who live in remote or rural areas, reduce the transmission of HIV and, ultimately, save lives. The President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief funds the project through the U.S. Agency for International Development.
