    The U.S. Agency for International Development recently announced a $38 million grant to the Public Health Foundation of India to implement the HIV/AIDS Partnership: Impact through Prevention, Private Sector and Evidence-based Programming Project.

    This project will strengthen systems to improve the quality of planning, implementation, monitoring, and evaluation of prevention programs. 

    It will contribute to India’s national strategy of saturating the coverage of most-at-risk-populations. The United States will also assist the Government of India in scaling up innovations and developing approaches to foster replication of effective interventions in other countries facing similar epidemics.

    PIPPSE, an activity developed jointly with the National AIDS Control Organization under the Government of India-USAID Health Partnership Program Agreement, will play a critical role in strengthening the institutional and human capacity of NACO, state AIDS Control Societies, and other related institutions to respond effectively to the Indian HIV/AIDS epidemic.

    PHFI is partnering with Population Services International, Futures Group International India Pvt. Ltd., and CARE India for the implementation of the project.
