Using the Best Science to Save Lives
Although progress is being made, the HIV epidemic still devastates countless lives. In 2021, 1.5 million new HIV infections were reported, two-thirds of them in sub-Saharan Africa. Worldwide, tuberculosis—a preventable and treatable disease—was responsible for 1.6 million deaths.
We have strong solutions to improve people’s health so they can thrive, and we’re bringing these solutions close to the communities hardest hit by these diseases.
Since 2001, Jhpiego has supported HIV testing service programs in 24 countries, providing almost 15 million people with testing services, and linking nearly 525,000 people living with HIV to care and treatment services.
