Description

The purpose of the USAID Sustaining Epidemic Control through Unified prevention (SECURE) Activity is to reach the general population and key populations (KP) with person-centered, evidence-based biomedical HIV prevention, testing, and treatment services. The SECURE Activity shall advance Government of Lesotho (GOL) efforts to revitalize HIV/AIDS prevention at the community level in line with the UNAIDS’ HIV Prevention 2025 Roadmap, which calls for 95% of people at risk of HIV to have equitable access to and use appropriate, prioritized, person-centered, and effective combination prevention options. SECURE also supports the UNAIDS 95-95-95 fast-track targets of 95 percent of key populations living with HIV (KPLHIV) know their status, 95 percent of KPLHIV who know their status are on antiretroviral therapy (ART), and 95 percent of those KPLHIV on ART have achieved viral suppression (VS). SECURE contributes to the attainment of the UNAIDS 10-10-10 targets, where less than 10% of countries have punitive legal and policy environments that deny or limit access to services, less than 10% of people living with HIV (PLHIV) and KP experience stigma and discrimination, and less than 10% of women, girls, PLHIV, and KP experience gender inequality and violence.
