APHIAPlus Nyanza/ Western (APHIAplus Nyanza)
USAID/Kenya supported an integrated service delivery model to improve the health of Kenyans across the country. The AIDS, Population and Health Integrated Assistance Program, also known as APHIAPlus, combined family planning, maternal/child health, malaria, nutrition, tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS prevention, care, and treatment services to provide an integrated, high-quality, equitable approach to sustainable services at the national, county, and community levels. Integrating these activities through one program provided more effective communication and coordination with county health administrators. Seamless services and technical support at the local level ensure health workers addressed the unique needs of each geographic area across the country.
AIDS, Population and Health Integrated Assistance Western Kenya worked to build equitable and sustainable health service delivery systems for some of Kenya’s most vulnerable populations.
The activity worked at a community level to improve the health and general well-being of marginalized families through increased access to food, water, sanitation, and hygiene, education, life skills and income generating activities. It also built the capacity of health care workers through mentorship and medical education on essential health services.
