The Strengthening Community Outcomes through Positive Engagement (SCOPE) Project is a USAID-funded New Partnerships Initiative project. SCOPE has two arms: (1) reproductive health/family planning, maternal and newborn health, and child health (RMNCH) and (2) HIV.
SCOPE-RMNCH is dedicated to reducing preventable maternal and child mortality and morbidity in Haiti, Kenya, Malawi and South Sudan. The project envisions a world in which women of reproductive age and caregivers of children under five adopt healthy behaviors and seek necessary care, and that high-quality community health services are accessible for mothers and children. SCOPE-RMNCH is providing training and support through trusted community voices, including community health workers, faith leaders, and community groups.
SCOPE-HIV is dedicated to HIV prevention, case finding, referral, and the return to care, and raising awareness and justice for children by engaging faith communities, men and youth, and girls and young women at the grassroots level. The project aims to contribute to Malawi’s achievement of the 95-95-95 goals (95 percent of people living with HIV know their status; 95 percent of people who know their status are on treatment; and 95 percent of people on treatment with suppressed viral loads).
