Evaluation of the Partnership for HIV-Free Survival: Uganda Abstract:

The Partnership for HIV-Free Survival (PHFS) was implemented in six countries in eastern and southern Africa between 2012 and 2016. PHFS was a collaboration among the United States President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), UNICEF, and the World Health Organization (WHO) to accelerate the uptake of the WHO 2010 guidelines on HIV and infant feeding.

In Uganda, PHFS was implemented in 22 demonstration sites and 56 scale-up sites in six districts (Jinga, Manafwa, Namutumba, and Tororo in the Eastern Region; Kisoro and Ntungamo in the Western Region). Key partners included ASSIST (University Research Company, LLC), Food and Nutrition Technical Assistance Project (FANTA) (FHI 360), Strengthening Partnerships, Results, and Innovations in Nutrition Globally (SPRING) (JSI), The AIDS Support Organization (TASO), the Uganda Ministry of Health, and USAID.

Findings from assessments of PHFS in other participating countries are available on MEASURE Evaluation’s website, here.
