HIV/AIDS AWARENESS

The HIV Prevention Programme, which is the one and the only MYSA project of the HIV Pillar, has the overall objective of strengthening the national response to HIV and AIDS; specifically it aims to ‘make individuals, and communities (MYSA zones) whether national or local, responsible for halting the spread of HIV and AIDS amongst high risk populations and mitigate the impact.

Spread of HIV/AIDS

we believe in operating our Programme as effectively and efficiently as possible. Our Programme provides services to sixteen MYSA zones and four branches. We could not do that without the commitment of our volunteers peer leader and all leader level one and two. Who provide more than 2,500 hours of voluntary services yearly(conducting Sexual and Reproductive health drills and referring young people for HIV services and other integrated services to our youths friendly site.)

The MYSA HIV/AIDS Programme support the HIV domain and has evolved together with the country’s dynamics and priorities in HIV. Effort has been made through previous years and months to align and harmonize with the government’s priorities and strategies in order to provide support, using the comprehensive and effective support, covering the government main prevention areas.
