File Type .pdf | File Size 424.9 KB

The Kingdom of Lesotho has an HIV prevalence of 22%, meaning 1 in 5 Basotho are infected with HIV. The Lesotho Ministry of Health (MOH) has adopted the UNAIDS 90-90-90 targets: by 2020, 90% of all people living with HIV will know their HIV status, 90% of all people diagnosed with HIV infection will be on antiretroviral therapy, and 90% of all people receiving antiretroviral therapy will have viral suppression. URC, in collaboration with MOH, Riders for Health, Christian Healthcare Association of Lesotho (CHAL) and other partners is working to achieve these goals by strengthening the laboratory system to ensure rapid, accurate HIV diagnostic services are available for the entire population. URC is focusing on diagnostic services, sample transportation, training lab technicians and laboratory capacity building for Lesotho to achieve its UNAIDS 90-90-90 targets.

This infographic highlights recent key achievements under the CDC Lesotho Lab Strengthening Project.
