U.K.-based engineering and development consultancy firm Mott MacDonald has won a service contract for a project that aims to improve evidence-based HIV prevention programming for vulnerable groups, including LGBTI and prisoners, in Southern Africa.

The Southern Africa Regional HIV Prevention Evidence program is expected to be implemented over four years and valued at about 8.6 million pounds ($14.5 million). The U.K. Department for International Development opened the project for bidding under a restricted procedure, which meant only shortlisted firms were allowed to submit a tender.
