FHI 360’s TIMIR Sexual HIV Prevention for Most-at-Risk Populations/Vulnerable Groups at Civil-Military Interface Settings works to prevent the spread of HIV in Ethiopia. The project’s goal is to help reduce the prevalence of HIV and sexually transmitted infections among military personnel, particularly in civil-military settings in selected “hot spot” areas across the country.
The program’s implementation strategy focuses on strengthening an evidence-based standard package of HIV prevention services targeting the military and their families, bar workers and surrounding civil society. The FHI 360 experts working on this project include health professionals, behavioral scientists and social workers.
Funded by the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief and the U.S. Department of Defense HIV Prevention Program, TIMIR is implemented in five regions of the country at these military installations: Gofa camp, Hurso, Tolay, Azezo-Metema, Enticho, Adwa-Adibereh and Shiraro.
