Organization: FHI 360
Closing date: 17 Oct 2020


The FHI 360-led “USAID HIV Support in Papua New Guinea” Project has made significant progress toward the ambitious UNAIDS’ 95:95:95 targets. However, program data shows that a significant number of PLHIV who start antiretroviral treatment (ART) ultimately drop out of care and are lost-to-follow up (LTFU) limiting the client- and population-level benefits of such services. Because of this, the project is implementing a package of interventions to address LTFU and help retain clients on uninterrupted ART, which includes a root cause analysis (RCA) to better understand factors contributing to LTFU among PLHIV on ART followed by subsequent program modification and improvement to respond to findings.

A protocol is under development to enhance understanding of the reasons why clients drop out of the HIV treatment program, results of which will be used to help refine client centered strategies and introduce innovations to address these factors and retain clients on lifelong treatment. There will be two components of this, including a qualitative assessment, to be led by an international consultant.
