Strengthening Community Structures: People Living with HIV Clusters Technical Brief


People living with HIV (PLHIV) clusters are an important part of Tanzania’s HIV response at the community level. Each cluster assists a number of PLHIV support groups, which meet in wards and villages all over the country. PLHIV clusters and support groups have a critical role in helping Tanzania reach the global 90-90-90 targets because their members identify people who are at risk for HIV and link them to testing, treatment, and other services, and support them to stay on treatment once started.

The Community Health and Social Welfare Systems Strengthening Program (CHSSP) built the capacity of 102 PLHIV clusters and their national-level coordinating body, the National Council of People Living with HIV and AIDS (NACOPHA). JSI. 2020.
