SUDANESE PEOPLE LIVING WITH HIV/AIDS CARE ASSOCIATION – SUDAN

In 2000, the Sudanese People Living with HIV/AIDS Care Association was established by people living with HIV in order to address the issues surrounding HIV/AIDS. They do so primarily through counseling, voluntary testing and home-based support. Today, this voluntary association has 14 branches and over 300 members. The Sudanese People Living with HIV/AIDS Care Association focuses on building community awareness and providing education in Sudanese churches and Mosques as well as in the universities, schools and clubs. The members of the association take part in the decision-making processes and in evaluating all of the results of their various programs. Women living in marginalized areas are a particular target group that they focus on. This organization has successfully changed the role of people living with HIV from passive beneficiary to active partner.
