Strengthening HIV treatment and prevention to support universal access and coverage

what we do

EQUIP supports the United States Agency for International Development’s (USAID) commitment, through the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), to end the HIV/AIDS epidemic, by fast-tracking cost effective treatment and prevention initiatives. With novel approaches, EQUIP supports the rapid diagnosis, viral suppression and linkage to sustained treatment for people living with HIV, ultimately working towards the UNAIDS 90-90-90 targets.



EQUIP delivers rapid-response treatment and prevention solutions to:

• Increase the number of people new on treatment through targeted testing and rapid scale-up of Test & Start.

• Increase the number of people retained in care and virally suppressed applying differentiated models of care.

• Evaluate the cost effectiveness of health interventions and outcomes.
