Practice Area
We Focus On

PSI Eswatini provides integrated HIV testing services and links to treatment at the community level to reduce stigma in support of the national Ministry of Health. Clients are encouraged to make the best choices for their health through programs that aim to prevent HIV infections in Eswatini and contribute to UNAIDS’ 95-95-95 strategy to eliminate AIDS by 2030. These programs include HIV self-testing, Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision (VMMC), distribution of Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) and promotion of condom use.

PSI Eswatini is currently developing and implementing a first-of-its-kind program to prevent NCDs in Eswatini in support of the Swati Ministry of Health’s (MOH) national NCD program, which has limited fiscal and human resources. The interventions that the program develops are integrated into PEPFAR- funded HIV services and address the pervasive need to improve the quality of diabetes and hypertension screening and treatment services in public health care clinics across the country.
