The AGAPE project concentrates on pregnant women, children, vulnerable groups of people and those at a high risk. It aims to improve the services offered by the national health system, in accordance with the objectives and priorities of Tanzania’s latest strategic plan for HIV/AIDS.
The supply and implementation of clinical services is one of the key objectives because this makes it possible to prevent the mother-to-child transmission of HIV, give them early treatment and ensures accurate communication of the results.
The AGAPE project intends to improve access to treatment for people living with HIV by implementing the test and treat approach that was introduced in Tanzania at the end of 2019.
The main features of the AGAPE project include advanced diagnostics, strategies to ensure adherence to the treatment, mechanisms to monitor the infections and conditions that occur or coexist with HIV, including malaria, tuberculosis, sexually transmitted diseases and malnutrition.
The beneficiaries of the AGAPE project are the people living in the Iringa, Arusha, Mara and Njombe regions.
