add alt text

Project Re-Engage Adolescents and Children with HIV (REACH) investigates whether a health facility-based peer support model improves HIV treatment outcomes and care services in children (1-9 years) and adolescents (10-19 years). It engages 59 young people living with HIV (YPLHIV) as Peer Supporters in 20 healthcare facilities. Together, these facilities treat and care for 23,531 children and adolescents living with HIV across five sub-Saharan African countries in urban (85%) and rural (15%) areas and primary (35%), secondary (25%) and tertiary (40%) healthcare settings.
