AIDSTAR-One: AIDS Support and Technical Resources for Prevention, Care, and Treatment
Through the AIDS Support and Technical Resources (AIDSTAR) Sector One program, USAID provides partner countries with a broad range of technical assistance and resources to develop and implement HIV/AIDS prevention, care, and treatment strategies. These include antiretroviral therapy, methods for combating the stigma and discrimination associated with the disease, and tools for more efficient data collection and analysis.
AIDSTAR-One aims to provide:
- Technical and program implementation support in HIV/AIDS areas, including behavior change, clinical and community-based HIV/AIDS services, care for orphans and vulnerable children, monitoring and evaluation, and health systems strengthening specific to HIV/AIDS services.
- In-country support for the coordination and scale-up for HIV/AIDS activities in support of the U.S. government’s country strategies.
- The documentation and dissemination of innovative approaches and sustainable models; evidence-based best practices and lessons learned; and new approaches, tools, and methodologies in HIV/AIDS programming.
In a consortium led by Management Sciences for Health (MSH), the CGHD collaborates with the following organizations on AIDSTAR-One:
- Management Sciences for Health (MSH)
- AIDS Health Care Foundation
