USAID Tujenge Jamii (UTJ) is a five-year (March 2021-2026) project made possible by the support of the American people through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). The project is being implemented by Deloitte and Touche LLP and Goldstar Kenya (GSK) to strengthen health and human capacities.
The core vision of USAID Tujenge Jamii (UTJ) is to create a county-owned, county-led and county-managed integrated platform for delivery of HIV, Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child and Adolescent Health (RMNCAH), Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) and nutrition services, with close collaboration between health facilities and communities. The project works in Baringo, Laikipia, Nakuru and Samburu counties.
In Nakuru, the project is implementing HIV prevention, care and treatment services, RMNCAH, WASH and nutrition, while in Baringo, Laikipia and Samburu counties, the project is implementing HIV prevention, care and treatment services only.
