Kiambu County: On 14 August 2023, LVCT Health’s Dhibiti Project had the privilege of hosting LVCT Health’s Board of Directors led by our Executive Director, Dr. Lilian Otiso. 

This visit was crucial for the Board of Directors to experience organisation work and impact in various health service delivery areas supported through the Dhibiti project in Kiambu County.

LVCT Health implements the CDC-funded Dhibiti project to support the implementation of Sustainable, Comprehensive, High-Quality HIV Prevention and Treatment Programs in four counties of central Kenya- Kiambu, Murang’a, Nyeri and Kirinyaga; as well as Key Population prevention interventions in Embu and Tharaka-Nithi counties. 

The Board visited the Kiandutu DREAMS (Determined, Resilient, Empowered, AIDS-free, Mentored and Safe)  site and the Thika Drop-in Center to assess the implementation of HIV Prevention interventions among Adolescent Girls and Young Women and the Key Population in the County.

The team witnessed work in various health service areas supported by the project, including HIV and TB prevention and treatment, focusing on key and priority populations, maternal and newborn health, health systems strengthening and quality improvement.

During the visit, the Board commended the project team for the milestones made towards realising better healthcare outcomes in the project focus counties as part of LVCT Health’s commitment to accelerate progress towards sustainable epidemic control and the 95:95:95 targets.

Dr. Catherine Njigua, the Programs Director, said that by the end of the five-year implementation period, they hope to see the county governments take up the management of HIV services to accelerate progress towards sustainable epidemic control and the 95:95:95 targets.

Through the in-person interaction with healthcare providers and project stakeholders, the Board developed a profound understanding of navigating the complexities of healthcare provision at the grassroots level. The Knowledge gained will be instrumental in formulating customized strategies to effectively address the demands and needs of the community’s healthcare infrastructure.

LVCT Health is supported by the U.S. Centres for Disease Control and Prevention CDC to implement the Dhibiti Project, a five-year transitional project to provide comprehensive and sustainable high-quality HIV prevention, care, and treatment services in six counties in the central region.
