Ministry of Health Launches National Undetectable = Untransmittable (U=U)  Campaign

The Government of Kenya through the Ministry of Health, with support from the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and LVCT Health, launched the U=U national campaign, an initiative aimed at eliminating HIV transmission in Kenya.

Speaking during the launch of the campaign, the National AIDS Control Council (NACC), Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Ruth Masha reiterated government’s support towards universal access to treatment and viral suppression.“We are committed not to leave anyone behind in this campaign. Let us encourage all people to get tested for HIV with the aim of early initiation to antiretroviral therapy,” said Dr. Masha. She called on stakeholders to develop messages that are clear and easy to understand by communities.

The campaign hopes to promote the undeniable benefits of treatment, encourage more and more people living with HIV to seek treatment and empower communities to eliminate stigma against those living with HIV.

Mr. Nelson Otwoma, the Executive Director of the National Empowerment Network of People Living with HIV and AIDS in Kenya (NEPHAK), spoke of the need to support those currently on treatment to achieve viral suppression. He urged people living with HIV to exercise their power in choosing additional HIV combination prevention methods they would want in consultation with health care providers.

The campaign echo’s LVCT Health commitment of reducing new HIV infections; increase equitable access to quality health services through innovative, integrated, comprehensive and high impact services and programs that can be delivered at scale.
