EnCompass was a subcontractor to John Snow, Inc. for the AIDS Support and Technical Assistance Resources Program Task Order 1 (AIDSTAR-One), a mechanism to implement the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). The AIDSTAR-One Project focused on HIV prevention, care, and treatment. EnCompass provided expertise in quality improvement, cost-effectiveness, policy, and gender equality. EnCompass developed guidance for integrating a gender-based violence (GBV) response in PEPFAR programming, and developed a conceptual framework for South-to-South technical assistance in PEPFAR gender strategies. Other activities have included the design and implementation of costing studies to support cost-based decision making in counseling, testing, and treatment and the development of knowledge products, including: technical briefs on mental health and HIV and GBV and HIV; case studies on combination HIV prevention, gender-based violence, and gender approaches to programs with most at-risk populations; e-learning programs on pediatric AIDS treatment; and, an assessment of a food by prescription program.
