About Shinda

Since October 2016, CHS through its SHINDA Project has been working with the Siaya County Department of Health, to provide high-quality HIV services to its population. SHINDA is a five-year HIV prevention, care and treatment program funded by the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) through the U.S Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

SHINDA is a Swahili word meaning ‘win’, a project name that shows the CHS commitment towards ‘winning the war against HIV/AIDS by achieving epidemic control’ in this high burden county.

Through this project, CHS is contributing to the ambitious 90-90-90 targets to help end the HIV/AIDS epidemic
