Asonvihsida - Nicaragua

A recognized actor in the national response to HIV, ASONVIHSIDA is the only organization in Nicaragua formed exclusively by people living with HIV. Working in five provinces and reaching 300 people living with HIV and their families, it provides educational activities, promotes human rights and gender equality, and seeks to reduce stigma and discrimination. ASONVIHSIDA works to empower women affected by HIV, people of all sexual orientations, and all age groups. It has formed alliances with faith-based organizations, organizations of men who have sex with men, transgender organizations and other social actors. It encourages people living with HIV to reintegrate into society, and provides them with access to microcredit to start small businesses and financially support their families. ASONVIHSIDA actively participates in advocacy and political activities locally and nationally.
