When PSI began implementing the USAID Central Asia HIV Flagship Activity in late 2015, it set out to achieve two goals: find cases and provide linkage to services for undiagnosed HIV cases; and perform case management for anti-retroviral therapy (ART) initiation and adherence. As PSI closes its part of the project at the end of this year and hands the reins to FHI360, we’re taking a moment to celebrate the Flagship Activity’s achievements and the people it has helped to live long, fulfilling lives.
In Kazakhstan, peer navigators have been working with people living with HIV like Natalya, Tatyana, Sergei and Maksat, all featured in the video below, to ensure they continue their courses of ART for their own health and that of their families. Under the USAID Central Asia Flagship Activity in Kazakhstan, more than 3000 people have started life-saving treatment for HIV.
Watch the video below to learn more about the project’s life-changing activities in Kazakhstan—and how Natalya, Tatyana, Sergei and Maksat are learning to smile again.
