Our impact

  • More than 10,000 men and boys have received voluntary medical male circumcision services, thereby benefiting from this procedure’s protective effect against HIV infection.
  • Through the Namibia Planned Parenthood Association (NAPPA), Jhpiego has supported HIV testing services for 43,023 individuals, with 1,368 testing positive.
  • Jhpiego has built NAPPA’s capacity to meet its clients’ needs by: increasing linkages to care for clients testing HIV-positive; integrating pre-exposure prophylaxis services, especially for adolescent girls and young women; integrating nurse-initiated and managed antiretroviral treatment; and introducing targeted HIV testing services using index partner tracing to increase case finding among adolescents and young people.
  • Jhpiego supported the Ministry of Health and Social Services to introduce community-based HIV testing and counseling through community health workers (CHWs), including 118 CHWs in two districts trained to provide safe, professional and accurate HIV testing and counseling services, including index partner tracing, at the household level.

Current programs
