Dr. Michael Audo

Project Director, LVCT Vukisha95

LVCT Vukisha95 is a five-year project funded by the US President’s Emergency Program for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) through the Centers 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.

Vukisha95 is a Kiswahili word for ‘Achieve beyond 95’ and was conceptualized from the UNAIDS 95-95-95 goal- the ambitious treatment target to help end the AIDS epidemic by 2030

Under this project, LVCT Health (Prime) and the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF) collaborates with the Ministry of Health, County Departments 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 two target counties. The goal and purpose of the project is to contribute to the achievement of the 95-95-95 targets by ensuring the identification of 95% of all persons living with HIV (PLHIV), provision of Antiretroviral Therapy (ART) to 95% of those identified as HIV positive and ensure viral suppression among 95% of those on antiretroviral therapy (ART).
