TASO has been offering medical and psychosocial services to people infected and affected by HIV since 1987. To date it has served more than 200,000 individuals and over 1,000,000 family members through its community and facilities all over the country.
TASO is the second principle recipient for the Global Fund to fight HIV, Malaria and Tuberculosis.
TASO works through subrecipients within the different communities to offer treatment against malaria, distributes mosquito nets and works closely with the Ministry of Health Malaria Control Programe.
TASO contributes to the reduction in the dual burden of HIV and Tuberculosis through two different arms.
First, through the Grants Management Unit
Secondly, through the Defeat TB Project
TASO is working with the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine on the INTEAFRICA Project looking at the possibility of integrating services for Hypertension and Diabetes into the TASO package.
