Although HIV prevalence in Ghana has experienced a slow decline in the past decade, there remains a significant epidemic among key populations, particularly men who have sex with men (MSM) and female sex workers (FSWs). HIV programming efforts of local nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) have been challenged by a lack of cohesion, coordination, and strong district and national implementation. Targeted investments were needed in NGO capacity building and organizational development (OD) to strengthen their ability to effectively implement, monitor, and evaluate HIV programs for key populations and people living with HIV (PLHIV). In response, FHI 360 Ghana was awarded Strengthening HIV/AIDS Response Partnership and Evidenced-based Results (SHARPER) in 2010 from USAID’s HIV/AIDS Service Delivery Support Program to reduce HIV transmission among MSM, FSWs, PLHIV and the sex partners of these groups.
