HIV

JSI’s approach to combating HIV is to partner with individuals, communities, and organizations to support progress toward achieving the 90-90-90 goals established by UNAIDS. With more than three decades of work in HIV, JSI and our partners engage to reduce new infections, increase access to continuous treatment and services, address stigma and discrimination, and reduce health inequities.

JSI staff are committed to providing evidence-based, context-specific services that respond to locally-identified needs. Through collaborative efforts, we scale up new prevention, treatment, and care innovations and strategies, such as test and treat and PrEP, and integrate them into existing systems. JSI remains dedicated to engaging partners to maximize our impact and improve access to comprehensive HIV services for the world’s most vulnerable populations.

Guiding Principles Behind JSI’s Work in HIV:
  1. Active participation of project beneficiaries--including those living with and affected by HIV, ensures that programs are relevant and locally-owned.
     
  2. Partnership and collaboration are essential to results. We work in partnership with communities and other stakeholders to research, assess, and implement programs.
     
  3. Multisectoral approaches more effectively address the underlying economic, social, and cultural factors that increase individual, family, and community vulnerability to HIV.
     
  4. Strengthened individual and institutional capacity promotes sustainability.
     
  5. Advocacy improves the HIV policy environment.
