Kenya targets zero-percent HIV infections

13 September 2013, 16:20

Nairobi - The Prevention Revolution Road Map, which aims to stop new HIV/AIDS infections is set to be launched next week.

This will be the highlight of the two-day National HIV/AIDS Prevention Summit scheduled to begin in Nairobi on Tuesday.

“The roadmap will provide programming guidance for new thinking in implementing robust, well coordinated scaled-up biomedical behavioural and structural interventions to stop new infections,” Jennifer Wambua, Head of Communication at National Aids Control Council (NACC), said ahead of the event.

“This will facilitate improved planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of HIV prevention interventions.”

NACC hopes the prevention summit will set policy directions on how to define and articulate primary modes of HIV transmission at county level while articulating results-based management approach and outcomes.

Other objectives of the summit are to bring together different stakeholders to build momentum for sustained leadership  and investment in HIV prevention at the national and county levels and engaging all the participants in coming up with an action plan for the roadmap which is specific to the burden of HIV in different county clusters.

The summit will be held under the theme, “HIV Prevention: Everyone’s Business.”

Established in 1999, NACC is a non-commercial organization whose mission is to provide police and a strategic framework for mobilizing and coordinating resources for the prevention of HIV transmission and provision of care and support to the infected and affected people of Kenya.

Kenya has a severe, generalized HIV epidemic, but in recent years, the country has experienced a notable decline in prevalence, attributed in part to significant behavioral change and increased access to antiretroviral treatment.

National adult HIV prevalence is estimated to have fallen from 10 percent in the late 1990s to current levels of 6 percent.
