EpiC is dedicated to achieving and maintaining HIV epidemic control and the project provides strategic technical assistance (TA) and direct service delivery (DSD) to break through barriers to 95-95-95 and promote self-reliant management of national HIV programs by improving HIV case-finding, prevention, and treatment programming.

Currently, EpiC and its consortium members are implementing HIV activities in 30+ countries.

Introduction to Sampoorna Suraksha Strategy (SSS) of National AIDS Control Organization (NACO):

Under the fifth phase of the National AIDS Control Program (NACP-V), the Sampoorna Suraksha Strategy (SSS) is a new form of “Immersion Learning Model” of service delivery for a comprehensive preventive services package that has been developed to reach populations who do not self-identify as high risk groups (HRGs) but are at-risk of acquiring HIV or sexually transmitted infections (STI) due to risky behaviors of self or partner(s) and are possibly at-risk of getting infected and are still being missed-out.

SSS is being implemented through the Sampoorna Suraksha Kendras (existing NACP facilities i.e., integrated counseling and testing centers (ICTCs) or designated STI/RTI clinics (DSRCs) functional at the districts) which are and will deliver a comprehensive service package under one roof and address the health needs of the beneficiaries. The service package is designed to include a holistic set of services customized as per clients’ needs, with strong linkages and referrals to other services and social security schemes, and rigorous client outreach and follow-up by using different modalities that may include virtual platforms through various apps and other strategies.

Hence, the Sampoorna Suraksha Strategy will-

• Ensure comprehensive prevention service package customized to geographies and vulnerable populations to maintain their HIV & STI negative status.
• Sustain focus on all at-risk HIV negative clients including:
1. Direct Walk-in beneficiaries at ICTC (and their spouse / partner(s))
2. Clients attending DSRC/STI Clinic & their partners
3. Adolescent and Youth Populations (As per NFHS definition)
4. Vulnerable Virtual Population
• Drive the development and roll-out of new generation communication strategies.

150 districts were identified as part of the program using pre-determined criteria. The program has been rolled out in 75 districts of 10 States in the Phase 1 (with 10 districts in 3 States in the “pilot” phase). An additional 75 districts of 10 States in Phase 2 are added during the Global Fund grant period 2021-24. The existing identified 116 SA-ICTCs and 34 DSRCs under NACP have been re-modelled into Sampoorna Suraksha Kendras (SSKs).

In the next grant cycle of Global Fund (2024-27), SSS is being scaled-up, there will be 339 more SSKs established year wise in 339 districts of 33 States i.e., 100 in 2024-25, 100 in 2025-26 and 139 in 2026-27 along with the existing 150 SSKs, hence there will be total 489 SSK units established by March 2027 under Global Fund Grant 2024-27. These units will be within the government health institution in identified NACP Facility i.e., SA ICTC or DSRC.
