Programs Impact

This division has implemented intervention programs/projects targeting the prevention, care, and treatment of three diseases: HIV/AIDS, Malaria, and Tuberculosis. During the 2013-date period, IRDO has implemented 16 programs targeting the three aforementioned diseases in 13 counties of Kenya. During the period, IRDO contributed to the national and global fast-track goals of ensuring that 95% of the HIV-infected persons know their status, 95% of those identified are initiated on ART and 95% of those on ART attain viral suppression.

From 2001 to date, IRDO has grown steadily, with the beneficiary focus cutting across adolescents, young girls and boys, women and adult men, widows, and Key Populations (KPs) [including Female Sex Workers (FSWs), Men who have Sex with Men (MSM) and People Who Inject Drugs (PWIDs)] with the main focus on HIV prevention and sub-focus on HIV care and treatment and on Malaria and TB prevention and management
