Ministry of Health : SFH has partnered with the Ministry of Health to increase access to health Services and reduce the disease burden in the Communities through construction of Health Posts at cell level, in addition, to ensure sustainability and to safeguard the gains made, SFH trains nurses through the Public Private Community Partnership to manage the health posts.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Rwanda: Society for Family Health (SFH), Rwanda was awarded a grant on 30th July 2019 with activity implementation commencing on 1st October 2019 to target Key and Priority Populations (KP/PP) in the HIV response.  The goal of the grant is to maintain the gains of the national KP program while applying other programmatic innovations aimed at providing standardized HIV prevention and treatment services to KPs (mainly MSM & FSW) and associated/linked PPs (high risk clients and friends of KPs). The model adopted by SFH is to work directly with health centres and community structures through a system strengthening approach to provide HIV prevention and treatment services to Key and Priority Populations (KPs/PPs). The community model engages KP peers who mobilize their colleagues for HIV Testing Services (HTS), offer adherence support to those on ART, and participate in the distribution of HIV prevention commodities (mainly condoms, lubricants, HVST etc.). The facility component targets working with trained health care workers to support HTS, ART linkage, and conduct of biannual reviews for KPs. SFH Rwanda’s KP/PP project currently targets 90 facilities spread across the 4 provinces of Rwanda and City of Kigali.

The Global Fund: The Global Fund HIV Program is a framework and grant agreement with the Global Fund through the Rwanda Biomedical Center-SPIU. The program implements HIV prevention activities focused on Behavior Change Communication, Social Marketing and distribution of the Plaisir condom brand, and ensure its availability and accessibility in all districts of the country.

Under the direct supervision of SFH/Rwanda, in partnership with the MoD/Medical Regiment, the necessary skills and resources in HIV prevention among Rwanda Defense Forces (RDF) members and key populations located in hot spots surrounding military bases are provided following national and international HTS guidelines to ensure high quality of services
