Towards Gender Sensitive and Transformative HIV Programming For CSOs

Towards Gender Sensitive and Transformative HIV Programming For CSOs
Over the past two decades, research and strategies to combat HIV have increasingly recognised that HIV infection and prevalence levels tend to be higher in women and girls than in men in Kenya, and that the negative social and economic consequences of the HIV& AIDs pandemic weigh most heavily on women and girls. HERAF in collaboration with HENNET, through financial and technical assistance from the German BACKUP Initiative has been implementing a project entitled,” Towards gender sensitive and transformative HIV/AIDS programming for CSOs in Kenya.” The project aims at strengthening the capacity of civil society organizations to use gender analysis for programs and interventions in HIV/AIDs in order to reduce gender-related barriers to its prevention, treatment, support and care.

The specific objectives of the project include;

  • Increasing the knowledge and understanding of civil society organisations on the linkages between gender and HIV&AIDS prevention, treatment, support and care
  • Strengthening the capacity of civil society organisations to use gender analysis as a basis for gender sensitive and transformative HIV&AIDS programmes and interventions, so as to reduce gender related barriers in prevention, care and treatment, as reflected in their work plans.
  • Development of stronger links, collaborations and networking between civil societies organisations working in gender sensitive and gender transformative HIV&AIDs programmes and interventions.

By the end of the project, HERAF aims to have;

  • Increased knowledge and understanding among Civil Society Organisations on the linkages between gender and HIV&AIDs prevention, treatment, care and support.
  • Strengthened the capacity of Civil Society Organisations to use gender analysis as a basis for gender sensitive and transformative HIV& AIDS programmes and interventions, so as to reduce gender related barriers in HIV prevention, care and treatment as reflected in their work plans.
  • Strengthened and enhanced links, collaborations and networking between Civil Society Organisations working in the areas of gender, HIV& AIDs prevention, treatment and care.

The target groups of the project include civil society organisations implementing programmes and interventions in the health sector while the primary beneficiaries will be women, sexual minority groups, boys and girls, people living with HIV & AIDS and the general public.
