The ultimate goal of NUMAT was to expand access to health services by building existing networks and expanding geographic coverage of services by strengthening local government responses and expanding the role of communities in planning, implementing, and monitoring activities.

Focusing on service delivery at the district and lower levels, NUMAT’s key areas of intervention included:

  • Improving coordination of HIV & AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria services among diverse partners under the guidance of district structures.
  • Increasing access to and utilization of quality HIV and AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria prevention and care & treatment services.
  • Decreasing vulnerabilities for specific groups to HIV, TB and malaria.
  • Increasing access of people with AIDS and their families to wrap-around services through effective partnerships with other programs.
