Once every year, PEPFAR brings together different stakeholders in PEPFAR recipient-countries to input into its annual Strategic Direction summary also known as the Country Operational Plan (COP). Civil Society and Communities in their diversity as Adolescent Girls and Young Women (AGYW), People Living With HIV (PLHIV) and Key Populations (KPs) are one of the key stakeholders to this process as they provide lived experiences and insights on program successes and best practices as well as the existing gaps and challenges in services delivery and quality.
Liu Lathu (Our Voices) is a consolidation of community priorities for the national HIV and TB program and facility level services developed out of a nexus of CSO and community-led consultation processes including; community-led monitoring findings and stakeholder engagement at community, facility, district and national level. Liu Lathu aims at amplifying the voices of AGYW, PLHIV and KPs as Recipients of Care (ROC) in the realm of their priorities and needs.
The purpose of this document is to inform and influence the PEPFAR COP process to address gaps in the HIV response and other related conditions. The intention is that quality HIV service and HIV program activities accrued from this process, should directly benefit Recipients of Care (ROC).
