Supporting USAID’s HIV Care and Treatment Program through Local Partner Development in South Africa

South Africa has the largest HIV epidemic in the world, affecting an estimated 7.5 million people,[1] which has been exacerbated by other diseases and the COVID-19 pandemic. Since March 2019, our team has been supporting USAID/South Africa to strengthen HIV and TB service delivery at public health facilities in priority districts that serve thousands of people living with HIV per month, with the ultimate goal of achieving HIV epidemic control. To do this, our technical experts work with USAID to engage local partners and the Department of Health staff to identify performance gaps, build capacity, and identify interventions to improve service delivery. The interventions implemented are further assessed to inform ongoing quality improvement.

Stakeholders in the Philippines’ Innovation Ecosystem Share Experiences and Ways Forward after USAID STRIDE

Strong partnerships between stakeholders in science and technology innovation ecosystems stimulate knowledge creation and transfer, enabling new products and business models to catalyze economic transformation and development. Through activities like STRIDE, USAID plays a vital role in strengthening collaboration among stakeholders in the Philippines’ innovation ecosystem, thus expanding inclusive, market-driven growth in the country. USAID/Philippines commissioned its CLAimDev activity to conduct an independent evaluation of STRIDE’s final three years, which were an extension beyond that activity’s original five-year contract. CLAimDev hosted an online learning event on March 16, 2022, to disseminate its findings, and give 300 participants an opportunity to share their insights on the challenges STRIDE encountered and ways to sustain its gains. CLAimDev’s full evaluation report is now accessible in USAID’s Development Experience Clearinghouse, and is also available in a web version here.
