TCE – A Family Approach (Gaza)

The project seeks to ensure that community members play an active role in preventing the spread of HIV and to encourage the positive lives of people already infected.

 

This is achieved through 246 Field Officers who work in the community by providing counseling and testing in households that already have people who tested positive at the health facility (index cases).

 

Through home visits to 93,365 people, the project promoted index case counseling and testing, selected pregnant women, infants and children under 5 with malnutrition, selected families for tuberculosis screening and encouraged women and girls to deal with violence of gender.
