Three quarters of a million people are living with HIV in Ethiopia. 90% of those who need antiretroviral treatment aren’t getting it. The need for care, support and access to treatment has never been more important.

We work with the Organization for Support Services for AIDS (OSSA) to provide care and support for people living with HIV, children who have lost their parents to AIDS and families who need our support. OSSA has trained 700 pastoral leaders in prevention, care and support and has four free HIV/AIDS information telephone hotlines. In 2013 OSSA reached over 20,000 children with care and support services in their own communities.

OSSA is also working with young people in Ethiopia as part of the Link Up project, an ambitious, five country programme which aims to improve the sexual and reproductive health and rights of more than one million young people over three years.
