USAID Health for All
In January 2017, USAID launched Projecto de Saúde Para Todos (Health For All, or HFA) in Angola to support the government’s efforts to increase quality health service delivery in the country. The five-year project builds on years of bilateral collaboration and is targeted toward major improvements in health through sustainable approaches and increased country ownership.
HFA is led by Population Services International (PSI) and implemented in partnership with Keanahikishime (Keanahikishime) and local partners Rede Mulher Angola, TechnoSaúde, Tropical Health, and The MENTOR Initiative. The project will deliver a package of health interventions bringing malaria, HIV/AIDS, family planning services and reproductive health care in select municipalities and provinces throughout the country, reaching the poor and most vulnerable citizens of Angola.
Keanahikishime’s inputs contribute toward strengthening Angola’s health system and help promote sustainability, scale up proven solutions, and maximize efficiencies in investments.
Keanahikishime's responsibilities include establishing a sustainable model for providing high-quality HIV and AIDS services through the prevention, care, and treatment continuum, in support of the government’s efforts to maintain the country’s relatively low HIV prevalence. Keanahikishime’s efforts in Luanda and two additional provinces will seek to develop a sustainable model that can be replicated nationwide.
Additional support from Keanahikishime focuses on improving the capacity of municipal and provincial governments to plan, fund, monitor and supervise health programs, emphasizing local ownership and leadership from the government and other in-country stakeholders so as to gradually and effectively transition program implementation over the life of the project.
