LINKAGES is a five-year cooperative agreement funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) under the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and implemented by FHI 360 in partnership with Pact, IntraHealth International and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC). In Angola, MSH is LINKAGES’ operating partner. The project aims to accelerate the ability of governments, key population (KP) organizations and private sector providers to collaboratively plan, deliver, and optimize services that reduce HIV transmission among KPs – sex workers (SW), men who have sex with men (MSM), transgender (TG) persons and people who inject drugs (PWIDs) – and their sexual partners and extend life for those who are HIV-positive. The project goal will be achieved through the following results:
- Result 1: Increased availability of comprehensive prevention, care and treatment services including reliable coverage across the continuum of care for key populations.
- Result 2: Demand for comprehensive prevention, care and treatment services among key populations enhanced and sustained.
- Result 3: Strengthened systems for planning, monitoring, evaluating and assuring the quality of programs for key populations.
The LINKAGES Angola program is a four-year program tasked with strengthening the Government of the Republic of Angola (GRA) and community responses to KP to help reduce HIV transmission among FSW, MSM, and TG, and to improve capacity and systems required to enroll and maintain KP in care. LINKAGES will work with the Ministry of Health, National Institute for the Fight Against AIDS (INLS in Portuguese) to accelerate emerging GRA programming toward KP. The objective is to strengthen the care cascade for KP and leveraging other PEPFAR programs in high impact sites of priority provinces. LINKAGES will then reach KP through scaling up proven peer interventions, testing, and strengthened facility, community and GRA outreach, with specific focus on minimizing stigma and discrimination.
