Approximately one third of new HIV infections in Kenya occur among FSWs, MSM, and PWID. Targeting these populations with HIV prevention, care, and treatment interventions is a key strategy for controlling the HIV epidemic. Under our flagship programme, the Sex Workers Outreach Programme, PHDA contributed significantly to Kenya’s National Plan for accelerating HIV care and treatment for 2015–17 to meet the UNAIDS 90:90:90
treatment target.1
In 2016/17, PHDA won a sub-award from the University of Maryland. Under this sub-agreement, PHDA provides
prevention, care, and treatment services to sex workers, MSM, and other key populations through seven SWOP
clinics. The year recorded significant achievements through the SWOP clinics. We reached a target population of about
30,000 male and female sex workers in Nairobi. This is the largest key population reached by a single programme
in the country.

Funders: PEPFAR, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the University of Maryland
