University of Nairobi has been implementing the Central Kenya Response Integration, Strengthening and Sustainability Project (CRISS+ Project) for the last five years (2017-2022) which is funded by President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) through the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention (CDC). The project supports HIV prevention, care and treatment activities implemented in 78 sites in Kiambu, Kirinyaga, Embu and Tharaka Nithi Counties through collaborations with County  Departments  of  Health  through  the  County  Health  Management Teams  (CHMTs);  Hospital  and  Health  Facility  Management  Teams  (H/HFMTs);  and  Community Health Units, Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT), LVCT Health, Kiambu People Living with HIV/AIDS (KIPEWA) and Hope World Wide Kenya (HWWK). The overarching goal is to build the capacity of the public health response in the four counties to achieve and maintain universal access to high quality HIV prevention, care, and treatment services, with particular focus on county- ownership, integration within broader health and developmental context, through an evidence based, cost-effective and sustainable model of care.
