Togo - Supporting improved HIV treatment outcomes among men who have sex with men and female sex workers living with HIV in Togo
This partnership would be completed together with FHI 360 funded by the United States Agency for International Development West Africa Mission (USAID/WA). The work in Togo would be part of a regional project which would also include engagement in Burkina Faso focused on building government political will and resources to engage key stakeholders to support programs that are evidence-based, adaptable, replicable and transferrable throughout the region.
Our team has been supported through CCP and USAID WA to support PACTE-VIH to build its research agenda through high quality implementation research studies. This relationship is built on a consortium of partners working towards achieving common goals.
This position would support the development of the following aims:
- Support the measurement of the HIV Cascade among Key Populations in Togo.
-Help develop a passive data collection approach to characterize the HIV treatment cascade specifically among key populations in partnership with the Government of Togo and PACTE VIH
-Implement intervention to support retention in the HIV cascade, through training mediators in HIV treatment retention support
-Support the evaluation of intervention benefit through the use of the aforementioned passive data collection system on people living with HIV.
