Healthy people

The Alliance strategy works towards four key results.
Result 1 is healthy people, which we are achieving through increasing access to quality HIV and health programmes.

Across the Alliance we have committed ourselves to increase the coverage, scope and quality of HIV and integrated health programmes. Our results demonstrate how we have prioritised programmes that prevent HIV infection, increase access to HIV testing and counselling, provide care and support, and improve access and adherence to antiretroviral treatment.

The results also show how we have promoted integration of HIV prevention and care into sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) and tuberculosis (TB) services. We also have a growing focus on HIV and hepatitis C co-infection and worked to create an enabling social and legal environment for HIV services, especially for key populations.

2015 milestones

  • 1,182,364 adults and children with HIV provided with care and support
    2015 milestone exceeded (800,000)

Globally, our coverage under this indicator expanded from 17 countries in 2014 to 21 in 2015. This community-led support to people enrolled in care and treatment programmes was largely driven by the Global Fund Vihaan programme, being implemented by India HIV/AIDS Alliance which reached 903,243 people. The Networking HIV/AIDS Community of South Africa (NACOSA) in South Africa are the second largest provider of care and support services, with 148,458 people living with HIV benefiting from their services in the country with the highest prevalence globally.

  • 1,013,299 people received HIV testing and counselling services and received their results
    2015 milestone exceeded (740,000)
  • 1,307,279 people from key populations reached with a defined package of HIV prevention services
    2015 milestone exceeded (1,000,000)

Alliance efforts are based on a combination and targeted approach to HIV prevention. Our reach increased by 30% in 2015; men who have sex with men were the largest group (621,708) closely followed by sex workers (322,190), people who use drugs (298,702) and transgender people (68,909).
