Epidemic Control in Tanzania (EpiC)

Meeting Targets and Maintaining Epidemic Control in Tanzania (EpiC)

Meeting Targets and Maintaining Epidemic Control (EpiC) is a global project funded by the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) which is dedicated to achieving and maintaining HIV epidemic control. It is led by FHI 360 as prime and has a five-year period of performance from September, 2019 to
September 2025.
EpiC provides strategic technical assistance (TA) and direct service delivery to break through barriers to 95-95-95 and improve HIV case-finding, prevention and linkage to treatment among key and priority populations (PP).The project is being implemented in Temeke Municipality and Lindi Distrct to address critical gaps and bottlenecks in the response to HIV among key and vulnerable
populations (KVP) and adolescent girls and young women (AGYW).The project aims at building the capacity of local, community-based organizations and work closely with LGAs to deliver HIV and other services tailored to the needs of these groups.
EpiC has four objectives which focus on filling existing HIV prevention, case finding, and treatment gaps, and on building long-term sustainability to attain and maintain epidemic control:

Objective 1: Attain and maintain HIV epidemic control among at-risk adult men, women and PPs;
Objective 2: Attain and maintain HIV epidemic control among KVPs;
Objective 3: Improve program management (including health information systems [HIS] and human resources for health [HRH]) and financial systems to ensure attainment and maintenance of epidemic control;
Objective 4: Support the transition of prime funding and implementation to capable local partners to meet the PEPFAR goal of 70% of funding to local partners by 2025.
