Projects & Resources
In June 2014, the U.S. Agency for International Development awarded FHI 360 the Linkages across the Continuum of HIV Services for Key Populations Affected by HIV Project (LINKAGES), a five-year cooperative agreement funded by the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief.
FHI 360 developed and introduced innovative HIV prevention technologies — including microbicides and antiretrovirals — and worked with local partners to address the need for HIV prevention options, particularly for women.
These practical and adaptable tools are intended to support strategic planning for research utilization during study design, stakeholder analysis and systematic tracking of interventions during study implementation.
