In reproductive and child health, SRH and HIV education we work to raise awareness of HIV and causes of spread of the virus and increase knowledge and practice of safe sex. Our innovative approach been to mobilise and inspire peer educators who are members of the communities vulnerable to the spread of HIV. Peer educators have a great impact in behaviourial change communication.

  2. To educate the vulnerable sections on the risk behaviours with relation to HIV/AIDS/STI infection
  3. To create an enabling environment for implementation of the project
  4. To increase the use of condom and safe sex practice among the vulnerable populations
  5. To provide care and support for the identified people living with HIV

Approaches

  2. Care and treatment for people with STIs through confidential medical consultation camps and mobilisation of Government health resources for continued care
  3. Establishment of referral systems for counselling and testing (ICTC), antiretroviral treatment (ART), Prevention of Parent to Child Transmission (PPTCT) programmes and STI clinics
  4. Prevention campaigns including condom demonstration, promotion and distribution
  5. Advocacy and lobby at state and national level through consultation, workshops and rallies
