Description:The recipient will consolidate efforts towards TB and HIV Epidemic Control through capacity strengthening, quality improvement and scale up of HIV service delivery in the Kenya Prisons Service (KPS). Kenya has 108 prison, 55,000 incarcerated persons in confinement at any time with 8% HIV prevalence. 8000 individuals are currently on HIV treatment within the prisons facilities and TB remains a major challenge due to congestion, poor housing and high turnover of inmates. The ongoing high risk of HIV transmission among inmates and sexual contacts upon discharge from prisons, high mobility among prison officers in far-flung regions and prohibition of use of condoms highlights the need for a strong KPS-led HIV and TB prevention and treatment program. The recipient will support HIV and TB prevention and treatment services at all prisons in Kenya while strengthening the KPS health and governance systems to increase their capacity to lead and deliver a high quality sustainable HIV and TB program with the following strategic objectives.• Build KPS health and governance systems for sustainable HIV and TB epidemic control• Mainstreaming HIV and TB prevention and treatment program into a robust KPS-led health delivery system • Provide evidence based behavioral and other HIV and TB prevention services to inmates, KPS staff and surrounding communities • Provide comprehensive HIV and TB clinical services to inmates, KPS staff and surrounding communities
