Webinar on Creating an AIDS-free Generation:
AIDSTAR-One’s Contributions to PEPFAR’s Roadmap on Saving Lives
Together with USAID and PEPFAR, AIDSTAR-One is presenting a series of events highlighting how the six-year project has supported the development and implementation of USAID’s and PEPFAR’s initiatives to create an AIDS-free generation.
PPlease join us for the second event in the series, a webinar on AIDSTAR-One’s contributions to PEPFAR’s Roadmap on Saving Lives. PEPFAR’s Blueprint for an AIDS-free Generation is driven by several key principles, the second of which is saving lives by scaling up combination prevention and treatment interventions. PEPFAR’s combination HIV prevention strategy covers a set of interventions that pave the way toward ending the HIV epidemic: prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT), voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC), increased coverage of HIV treatment, and improved access to and uptake of combination HIV prevention and testing interventions. AIDSTAR-One has worked closely with USAID and PEPFAR across HIV treatment, combination prevention, and testing. This webinar will feature presentations on two specific initiatives: first, scaling up VMMC programs; and second, increasing coverage of HIV treatment in complex situations.
This webinar will be moderated by AIDSTAR-One technical experts. Presenters include Emmanuel Njeuhmeli, Co-Chair of the PEPFAR Male Circumcision Technical Working Group, and Bisola Ojikutu, AIDSTAR-One’s senior treatment and PMTCT advisor. During the discussion, participants will be encouraged to share additional practices and experiences.
