Implementation will occur in 13 scale-up and 17 sustained districts within the four regions of Dar es Salaam, Pwani, Kigoma and Zanzibar. Districts may be revised over time based on evolving evidence of epidemic burden. The awardee(s) will strengthen and collaborate with regional and district health management teams (RHMTs/DHMTs) to implement care and treatment activities at the facility level to achieve the goals of PEPFAR and GOT’s National Multisectoral Strategic Framework (NMSF III). The awardee(s) will implement comprehensive care and treatment along the clinical cascade through identifying HIV positive adults and children through quality facility provider-initiated testing and counseling (PITC); collaborating with the community HIV testing and counseling (HTC) partner to ensure HIV-positive identified individuals are linked to care and treatment clinics; ensuring adherence to ART; retaining clients in care and treatment; and, routine clinical and viral load (VL) monitoring toward reducing new infection and achieving the PEPFAR goal of HIV epidemic control in line with the NMSF III.
