Zambia, there were 6,667 male clients enrolled in PrEP by April 30, 2020. This growing number required strengthening the ability to provide PrEP, track clients, and collect and analyze data. In Zambia, PrEP is provided only to individuals found to be at substantial risk of HIV, using a national eligibility screening tool.
The USAID DISCOVER-Health Project, implemented by JSI Research & Training Institute Inc (JSI), was one of the first MOH partners to roll out PrEP, both in the pilot phase and nationwide (after May 2018 scale-up approval). As a relatively young PrEP program, USAID DISCOVER-Health developed a PrEP management information system to analyze data to inform program implementation. This poster was presented at the AIDS 2020 Virtual Conference.
