Service Delivery.

Increase access to quality, tailored, comprehensive, context and age-specific HIV, TB, STI and Sexual Reproductive Health services, information and utilization to Key and Priority populations, young people and other at risk and vulnerable populations.

Despite the availability of HIV/TB/STI and SRH services in facilities, key populations, young people and other most at risk populations fail to access and sometimes shy away from these services and interventions. A wide range of factors contribute this poor uptake and utilization of services including; stigma, discrimination, attitude of service providers, lack of information about the services offered among others. We will work with all stakeholders; government, partners, key populations, young people and other most at risk populations to address factors that hinder access and utilization of HIV/TB/STI/SRH and other service, increase demand and create an enabling environment for increased access to services
