Join 4Children and OVCsupport.org for a webinar on improving linkages to HTS for vulnerable children!

November 30, 2017 at 9am EST/5pm EAT

Despite the dramatic success of HIV treatment programs around the world, children remain under-represented in HIV testing numbers and are thus denied access to life-saving treatment.  Acknowledging that children affected by HIV are at increased risk for infection, and in alignment with PEPFAR technical guidance, over the past four years, many programs have scaled up efforts to apply family-centered approaches to promote and facilitate testing, treatment linkages and adherence support for children and adolescents.

Programs for orphans and vulnerable children (OVC), through their community presence and unique relationships with caregivers and children, are especially well placed to promote and facilitate the entire HIV care and treatment cascade over time with age-appropriate information and approaches.

Join us in this webinar to learn about key findings from three case studies of OVC Programs in Ethiopia, Kenya and Zimbabwe along with barriers and recommendations for programming with the goal of reaching all children in need of HIV testing and services and supporting the global 90-90-90 effort.

Moderator: Kelley Bunkers, Child Protection and Social Welfare Systems Technical Director, 4Children
Presenters: Francesca Stuer, Senior Associate, Maestral International; Nicolas Makau, Program Manager, Lea Toto; and a special guest giving a youth perspective on disclosure.
