Living Positively: A Mother Finds Hope

When Grace found out she had HIV, she wanted to end her life. You helped her find her strength—and today she’s giving hope to other women.

What We Did

  • Built the capacity of health providers to offer quality HIV prevention and treatment services, ensure consistent supply of vital HIV medicines, and partner with communities to stop new HIV infections
  • Integrated contraceptive services with HIV, maternal health, and cervical cancer services
  • Focused on the unique sexual and reproductive health needs of adolescents—the largest generation of young people in history—as they come of age
  • Worked with both communities and health facilities to recognize pregnancy danger signs, ensuring access to skilled birth attendance and improving the quality of health care
  • Challenged harmful gender norms by engaging women and girls, men and boys, and key influencers in examining the root causes and effects of harmful stereotypes and gender inequities
  • Partnered with communities to address the social determinants of health including livelihood strengthening; food security; and water, sanitation, and hygiene
