The Ethiopian Network for HIV and AIDS Treatment, Care and Support (ENHAT-CS) program builds upon a solid HIV/AIDS service foundation to address the persistent problem of HIV/AIDS. With an estimated 1.2 million PLHIV and an incidence that is outpacing the available care and treatment resources, ENHAT-CS responds with coordinated prevention, care, and treatment programming that is integrated across all stakeholders in Ethiopia.
The ENHAT-CS program intensifies the expansion of quality antiretroviral therapy (ART) services, strengthens the continuum of care from household to health center, while enhancing maternal, newborn, and child health, tuberculosis, and other services, and develops Ethiopian capacity to sustain the use of and demand for services.
To expand HIV and AIDS services, the ENHAT-CS program supports the Government of Ethiopia to scale up comprehensive HIV and AIDS services from the 159 health centers that currently provide ART to 406 health centers in the Amhara and Tigray regions of Ethiopia.
