Challenge

We are situated in a conservative and homophobic environment and the fact of a political member of parliament who tables Anti-homosexuality bill hails from this region, and the rising police brutality associated with community assaults and violence. There is need to mobilize, sensitize, and create awareness to the MSM community in this region bearing in mind there is much need to cascade to community, law enforcers, policy makers, health service providers for MSM to access health services

Solution

The project will sensitize police and law enforcement, health care workers and form the county health technical working group for key population. We will mobilize and create awareness to the MSM community holding grassroots outreaches within their localities. create a safe space where they can come and receive services free from stigma and discrimination. a conducive space where they can conduct health forums and receive medication for those in need.

Long-Term Impact

we will reach 500 MSM who will also reach in their networks educating them on health issues especially HIV/AIDS.We will decrease HIV prevalence among the MSm and increase condom and lubricants use.There would be an open safe space for the community to access information and health services free from stigma. We will play a part in the national guideline in the prevention and linkages for HIV/AIDs.We will create room for advocacy and policy change
