Based on WAAF and IHCC’s impressive work on donor-supported projects such as the Meeting Targets and Maintaining Epidemic Control (EpiC) project and Differentiated Service Delivery (DSD) options being offered, WAAF and its clinic the International Health Care Centre (IHCC) had the privilege of hosting a high-powered delegation from USAID and the FHI 360 team. The team was led by Dr. Atul Gawande, the Assistant Administrator of the United States Agency for International Development.
The brief visit started with a national scope of HIV Self-Test (HIVST) and Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) uptake in Ghana by the Program Manager of the National AIDS Control Program, Dr. Stephen Ayisi Addo. The team was also interested in learning more about WAAF and its onsite clinic, the International Health Care Centre’s history, and its work on past and present projects. They also sought to learn more about HIVST and PrEP uptake among key populations serviced by WAAF and IHCC’s projects.
PrEP Champions from WAAF’s implementing partners Worldwide International Youth Organization (WIYO) and Priority on Rights and Sexual Health (PORSH) were present to testify to the benefits of Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP).
Nurses from IHCC shared their experiences on the project and demonstrated how services are rendered from the mobile clinic during community service delivery. The WAAF and IHCC team remain grateful to PEPFAR, USAID, FHI 360, and NACP for their generous support to WAAF, IHCC and the various projects.
