Paediatric HIV Breakthrough Partnership

The Breakthrough Partnership is a commitment to end paediatric HIV in regions most urgent. Mid-2020 it has kicked off in Mozambique, Nigeria and Uganda. Aidsfonds is partner in this ambitious collaboration formed by ViiV Healthcare Positive Action. Our contribution is to pilot and scale community responses in paediatric HIV to ensure children and their mothers have access to a comprehensive package of services to keep them healthy.

The Breakthrough Partnership is supported by a grant from the ViiV Healthcare Positive Action Programme.

Time frame

2020 - 2026


Adolescent girls and young women, Children


Cameroon, Mozambique, Nigeria, Tanzania, Uganda


In five Breakthrough countries we will collaborate with our valuable partners to implement the community based paediatric HIV approach. In Mozambique, we will work with N’Weti, in Nigeria with Society for Family Health, and in Uganda with the Community Health Alliance Uganda, Health Need Uganda and National Forum of People Living with HIV and AIDS Networks in Uganda (NAFOPHANU).

Together we will build upon our existing community work. Only then do we ensure to find children living with or exposed to HIV and their (pregnant) mothers, test and link them to HIV care and support them to start and continue their treatment. Under the leadership of governments and together with the other Breakthrough Partners we ensure strong health and community systems linkage and joint advocacy for improved service delivery for children and their mothers.


– End paediatric AIDS in priority locations through supporting the implementation of a high-quality package of sustainable and replicable interventions that is informed by the UNICEF Paediatric Service Delivery Framework
– Develop and amplify the evidence that a collaborative approach between national stakeholders (government, clinic and community) works and advocate for governments and other stakeholders to adopt such an approach


Partner with us!

Aidsfonds is interested in working together to further strengthen community leadership, increase HIV prevention choices, and improve treatment outcomes and quality of life of people living with or exposed to HIV. We want to talk to anyone who shares our dream and wants to join us on a journey toward a world free of AIDS.
