In this expanded role under USAID’s AIDSFree program, EnCompass provides technical assistance to USAID’s voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC) programs. VMMC is a highly effective procedure in reducing the spread of HIV and increasing the accessibility of HIV testing services for males.
In this report, AIDSFree reviewed the PEPFAR Gender-Based Violence Initiative (GBVI) in Mozambique in 2015 to assess lessons of the initiative's implementation. The PEPFAR GBVI is aimed at improving HIV prevention, care, and treatment at all levels of society in Mozambique. The AIDSFree team reviewed 390 documents and spoke with 40 stakeholders to complete the assessment. Findings from this report will be used to inform programming and future initiatives.
