SUMMARY

The EpiC Tanzania Police and Prisons Project promotes easier access to lifesaving HIV and tuberculosis treatment for 55 police and prison facilities and their nearby communities. The project works in 22 regions in Tanzania mainland and Zanzibar.

The project promotes behavioral risk reduction, positive social norms, and the use of biomedical prevention for the uniformed forces population. The project will increase the availability and accessibility of comprehensive HIV care, treatment, and support services and strengthen systems for linking individual clients from community-based programs to the continuum of care for HIV, health, and other related services. EpiC also provides guidance and capacity building for gender-based violence prevention and response in prisons and among police.

The EpiC Tanzania Police and Prisons Project runs from January to September 2020 under the Meeting Targets and Maintaining Epidemic Control (EpiC), a global project supported by the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).
