The project is funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development and implemented by a Pact-led consortium of top global HIV/AIDS partners.
The ACHIEVE consortium works with USAID Missions, national governments and existing response partners to identify gaps in HIV prevention and treatment programming among target populations.
As part of its strategy, ACHIEVE is working to prevent and respond to gender-based violence and to empower youth to own their own future.
