The Network of People living with HIV and AIDS (LibNep+) with International Treatment Preparedness coalition (ITPC) have formally launched the community HIV care and treatment monitoring project in the country.

The three-year project, in two phases, is in anticipation that by 2020 Liberia achieves the 90,90,90 target to end AIDS by 2030, seeks to monitor medical issues that matter most to the community of people living with the virus in two of the 15 political sub divisions of the country.

Making the disclosure Thursday, November 23, 2017 at the Lutheran Church in Liberia compound in Monrovia to formally declare the launch, Global Fund Project coordinator at the Ministry of Health, Sophie T. Parwon said stigma remains an obstacle to people living with HIV and AIDS to access treatment in the country. Madam Parwon observed that as a result of that treatment rate of PLHIV in the country stands at 26 percent, while the rest are not on treatment.

She further indicated that of 2,000 individuals affected by HIV and AIDS in grand Bassa County only 300 of them are currently undergoing intensive treatment at health facilities in the county.

For Montserrado County, Parwon indicated that of the 22,000 HIV positive cases, only 7,000 of them are not also on treatment, a situation she observed that calls for scale up to reach the 2020 catch up plan.

“The community HIV care and treatment monitoring project under the sponsorship of Global Fund for LibNep+ is tailored to fight against AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria,” she indicated.
