USAID Tujenge Jamii project brings about well-tailored interventions in the select high priority counties in Kenya to build the capacity of the county governments health departments to manage high-quality HIV care and treatment, family planning/reproductive, maternal, newborn, child, adolescent health (FP/RMNCAH), nutrition, and water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) services and make them accessible to those in need.
USAID Tujenge Jamii project aims at:
- Providing and increasing availability of HIV care and treatment services for priority populations. This includes HIV prevention, diagnosis and treatment of sexually transmitted infections, gender-based violence prevention and response, contraceptives, community mobilization and norms change
- Increasing access to quality health services for mothers, children, adolescents and youth in the select counties. This is achievable through promoting health seeking behavior and increasing uptake of quality delivery of FP/RMNCAH services.
- Advancing high impact evidence based maternal and child nutrition promotion interventions to improve nutrition outcomes.
- Promoting water sanitation and hygiene (WASH) and waste management is critical in preventing infectious diseases. In the context of COVID 19, WASH is a mitigation measure for preventing transmission of COVID-19 virus in homes and public spaces.
- Strengthening capacity of County Health Systems, Local Partners, and Communities through training and mentorship to deliver quality health services.
