AIDSRelief Ethiopia Final Report
From 2009 to 2012, AIDSRelief Ethiopia provided HIV care and treatment to more than 4,000 patients, including 2,179 who enrolled on lifesaving antiretroviral therapy (ART) at five treatment sites. Three members of the global AIDSRelief consortium—Catholic Relief Services, the University of Maryland School of Medicine Institute of Human Virology, and Futures Group—provided technical and program support based on their core capacities. The care and treatment program was implemented through a local partner, the Ethiopian Catholic Secretariat.
Although the program commenced much later than the nine other AIDSRelief programs (all of which began by 2004), it was able to demonstrate essential service delivery approaches and key accomplishments in a very short period of time. This report outlines key outcomes and lessons learned during the four-year program. It also describes approaches and methods that contributed to the program’s success.
