HOPE (Index Case Testing)

The HOPE project is implemented in 7 districts in the provinces of Maputo and Cabo Delgado.  The project seeks to reduce the risk of exposure to HIV by mobilizing individuals and communities in the fight against HIV/AIDS. The project promotes free voluntary HIV counselling and testing with the aim to save lives among people living with HIV to start and stay on the lifelong treatment.

The project promotes free voluntary HIV counselling testing, counselling on adherence to Anti-Retroviral Treatment (ART), contributing to treatment adherence and retention of newly enrolled patients. Additionally the project offers TB screening, screening for gender-based violence and malnutrition to further reduce HIV and TB infection and co-infections.  Pregnant women, discordant couples and children, are prioritized as they are among the most vulnerable groups.

 

Key Results 2019: The project tested 49,000 people, and identified 6,174 new PLHIV (14%), of whom 90% started treatment. In Maputo, the project reintegrated 60% of the 3,000 patients who had abandoned antiretroviral treatment.
