Reaching Impact, Saturation, and Epidemic Control

Enhancing global health by ensuring local capacity to meet health emergencies

USAID’s Reaching Impact Saturation and Epidemic Control (RISE) program has supported over 20 countries across the globe with technical assistance, service delivery, research, and cross-cutting health system aid.

RISE utilizes proven tactics from 20 years of PEPFAR implementation to address critical HIV and COVID-19 priorities and to further meet the demands of global health security. RISE is a multi-year project running through 2025, with an award ceiling of $391 million.

Provider Training Toolkit on use of Long-acting Injectable Cabotegravir (CAB-LA) for HIV Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP)

The training and resources included in this toolkit will help clinicians learn about and support provision of CAB-LA as an HIV prevention option for their clients.

Of the approximately 37.9 million people living with HIV, 1.7 million were newly infected in 2018—510,000 of them between the ages of 10 and 24.

About RISE

RISE, a 5-year global project funded by the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), allows USAID missions to access direct service delivery and technical assistance to achieve their PEPFAR targets. RISE is ready to mobilize our in-country teams to help USAID achieve country operational plan targets across the HIV prevention, care and treatment cascade. RISE focuses on eight key technical areas:

Health Systems Strengthening 

We work with stakeholders at all levels of the health care system to identify needs and mobilize resources to build high-quality, resilient and locally owned systems.

HIV Testing

We support countries to provide comprehensive HIV testing services, including facility- and community-based testing, index case testing and self-testing, and link those who test positive to care and ART initiation.

Antiretroviral Optimization 

We partner with countries to support the transition to optimized ART regimens, initiate and scale up differentiated models of care, and promote adherence and retention in care to achieve and maintain viral suppression.
