The Adolescents and Children HIV Incidence Reduction, Empowerment, and Virus Elimination (ACHIEVE) project is a five-year global initiative (2019-2024) aimed at achieving and maintaining HIV epidemic control among pregnant and breastfeeding women, adolescents, infants, and children. This project is funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and is implemented by a Pact-led consortium of leading global HIV/AIDS partners, including Jhpiego, Palladium, No Means No Worldwide, and WI-HER.
