AMPATH is targeting a population of 2 million people extending from cities to the most remote villages in western Kenya. AMPATH has developed a new model called Perpetual Home-based Counseling and Testing (PHCT). In this model AMPATH assigns each PHCT counselor to their own designated location. PHCT counselors take responsibility for linking those found to be HIV+ with care. With PHCT, AMPATH has a better knowledge of HIV prevalence, can monitor the impact of its interventions, help reduce the loss to follow up and can ensure care and treatment for the long term. Nearly one million people were reached through the PHCT program.
