Strengthening High Impact Interventions for an AIDS-free Generation (AIDSFree) Project improves the quality and effectiveness of high-impact, evidence-based HIV interventions—such as HIV testing, treatment, prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT), voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC), and condom promotion—in order to meet country-specific objectives.

AIDSFree is a five-year cooperative agreement that supports and advances implementation of the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) by providing capacity development and technical support to United States Agency for International Development (USAID) missions, host-country governments, and HIV implementers at the local, regional, and national levels.

In line with the PEPFAR Blueprint: Creating an AIDS-free Generation, AIDSFree translates research findings to programmatic practices, enhances further development of technical and organizational capacity to deliver high-impact evidence-based programs, and disseminates technical information through traditional, social, and emerging media for rapid scale up of core evidence-based combination prevention interventions including:

- Prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT)
- Voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC)
- HIV testing and counseling as a gateway to treatment
- Pediatric and adult HIV treatment
- HIV prevention interventions, including condom promotion and structural prevention
- Other high-impact approaches that may emerge over the life of the project.

AIDSFree is also positioned to accept funding from USAID missions for strengthening HIV interventions and capacity building.

AIDSFree is funded and managed by USAID’s Office of HIV/AIDS. The program is led by JSI and comprises of a consortium of partners including Abt Associates Inc., Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, EnCompass LLC, IMA World Health, The International HIV/AIDS Alliance, Jhpiego Corporation, and PATH.
