Advocating for better services for sexual minorities

By Mbabazi Busingye | Project Leader

 

Globally, gay men and other men who have sex with men are 24 times more likely to acquire HIV than adults in the general population. Stigma, discrimination, violence and the criminalization of same-sex sexual practices makes it more difficult for these men to access HIV prevention, testing and treatment services.

Human Rights First Rwanda Association has for the last three months been   undertaking an evidence-informed advocacy in bringing these issues to the lime light and showing the impact that human rights violations can have on HIV responses, especially on services targeting key populations

Although there is still a lot of silence around issues surrounding sexuality, sexual orientation and gender identity, there is hope that in the near future a  greater pool of sexual minority  communities will be standing up for their rights and demanding access to services and a rights-based approach to service delivery..
