Technical assistance for the coordination of the operational plan for HIV viral load



In Guinea, the number of people living with HIV (PLHIV) receiving antiretroviral (ARV) treatment was 50,664 patients as at 30/06/19 and is to be increased to 60,019 by 31/12/20. In addition, there is an uneven distribution of the supply of viral load measurement and early HIV testing services with an estimated low coverage of 31% as at 31/12/2018.  It is in this context that the National Programme for the Fight against HIV/AIDS (PNLSH) has requested the technical support of Solthis, in the continuity of the OPP-ERA project, for the coordination of the development of an operational plan aimed at improving access to viral load measurement and the implementation of early HIV testing activities.
