Background


Youth Network for Positive Change is a youth led local Civil Society Organization (CSO) that promotes issues around Education, Health, Good Governance and Environment. YOUNETPO has been in existence since 2014 and has successfully implemented projects in Montserrado, Margibi, Grand Bassa and Nimba Counties.


YOUNETPO was selected as a new partner to the EpiC project in FY21 and is expected to continue implementation for FY22. The Meeting Targets and Maintaining Epidemic Control (EpiC) is a global project funded by the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) which is dedicated to achieving and maintaining HIV epidemic control. It is led by FHI 360 as prime and has a five-year period of performance from April 15, 2019 to April 14, 2024. EpiC builds upon the successful investments in key population (KP) programming from the USAID-funded, FHI 360-led Linkages Across the Continuum of HIV Services for Key Populations Affected by HIV (LINKAGES) project (2014 – 2021). EpiC is designed to break through remaining, persistent barriers to achieving the 95-95-95 goals among both key and priority populations (PP) and promotes self-reliant management of national HIV programs. EpiC will focus on filling existing HIV prevention, case finding, and treatment gaps, and on building long-term sustainability to attain and maintain epidemic control.
