    We are proud that our own Mariya Saleh has been recognized as a 120 Under 40 family planning leader. With our team in Nigeria, Mariya has led task shifting policy change efforts for previously under-utilized health worker cadres, implemented integration of family planning into HIV programs, and come up with new ways in which to deliver family planning to women and girls displaced due to the Boko Haram insurgency. She plans to use the platform of the 120 Under 40 competition to increase acceptance of family planning among youth through social media. Congratulations on this recognition and achievement, Mariya! #120under40 #Nigeria #familyplanning #HIV

    Today at a press conference at #IAS2017 in Paris, experts and healthcare workers discussed the importance of combating stigma against key populations. Neo Monnapula, a social worker from Botswana who was recognized at the conference for her excellence in providing services to sex workers, said, ""To me, it has been fulfilling to work with sex workers because theyre open, and theyre people just like anyone else: they are mothers, they are sisters, and they need access to services like everyone else."" Neo''s clinic in Botswana is supported by the @usaid and @pepfar -funded LINKAGES project, which is operated by FHI 360. ""LINKAGES has really shown us, and weve been told this by communities from the beginning, that you need to work within the community. Using peer to peer outreach has really made a significant difference over the last three years,"" said PEPFAR Ambassador Deborah Birx.

    Yesterday in Paris, France, FHI 360 staff helped coordinate and run two pre-#IAS2017 satellite sessions on key populations, HIV cascades, and implementation science. #IAS2017 is a crucial point when the scientific advances within the HIV response are center stage and we are pleased to contribute to the conference. #HIV #AIDS #Paris #keypopulations #globalhealth @usaid

    At the inaugural HIFA Street Stage in #Zimbabwe, sponsored by PEPFAR, we''re providing information on Test and Start. The Test and Start approach starts patients on antiretroviral therapy (ART) immediately after an #HIV-positive diagnosis in an effort to improve health outcomes. Study evidence shows that the earlier patients initiate ART, the better they do. #globalhealth #GlobalGoals
