LVCT Health is implementing Vukisha95, a five-year program funded by the U.S. Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to support sustainable implementation of comprehensive high-quality HIV prevention, care, and treatment interventions in Homa Bay and Kisii Counties.

Under this program, LVCT Health (Prime) and the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF) (Sub) works cohesively with the Ministry of Health, relevant government agencies, as well as other key stakeholders at community, county, and sub-county levels, to achieve HIV epidemic control by going beyond the 95-95-95 targets in the program target counties.

Since its inception, LVCT Health has been at the forefront of reducing new HIV infections: increasing equitable access to quality health services through innovative, integrated, comprehensive, and high-impact services and programs that can be delivered at scale.
