The Meeting Targets and Maintaining Epidemic Control (EpiC) project of FHi360 provides strategic technical assistance and direct service delivery to achieve HIV epidemic control and promote self-reliant management of national HIV programs by improving HIV case finding, prevention, treatment programming and viral load suppression. The technical resources linked below (some available in Portuguese) offer knowledge and tools from the EpiC project that can be used to guide the implementation or scale-up of efforts to decentralize distribution of HIV antiretroviral therapy (ART), with cognisance of the potential effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
