In Zambia, CHAI’s Pediatric HIV program is supporting the Government of Zambia (GRZ) to accelerate the scale up of pediatric antiretroviral therapy with funding from the ELMA Philanthropies. This 3 year follow on program builds on the work started in phase 1 of the ELMA supported pediatric HIV program that started in 2014 and has contributed to significant progress made on attaining the first 90 on pediatric testing. In order to build on the gains made in phase 1, efforts need to be intensified around the 2nd and 3rd 90 to attain 90% coverage on, initiation and retention on treatment including achieving viral suppression for all pediatric populations on ART. The program will build upon Phase I results, by focusing on (i) institutionalizing proven testing interventions; (ii) establishing strong linkage systems, and (iii) identifying effective strategies to improve pediatric retention/viral suppression.
