Created under the U.S. President's Emergency Fund for Aids Relief (PEPFAR), NPI was a signature effort to help new and diverse non-governmental organizations (NGOs) develop their capacity to fight HIV/AIDS at the local level. NPI came to a close on September 30, 2012 after five years of providing more than 29 grantees and 219 implementing partners across 14 countries with technical assistance and broad-based trainings designed to ensure that know-how developed under their award would be institutionalized and sustainable.

In January 2012, representatives from NPI grantees and the U.S. Government, as well as experts in organizational development and institutional strengthening, gathered at end-of-project (EOP) meetings in Kampala, Uganda and in Johannesburg, South Africa. The meetings were designed to share lessons learned and highlight best practices that helped bolster grantees' capacity to plan, implement and sustain more effective HIV/AIDS interventions.
