  • 44,851 people (21,445 F & 23,406M) received Behavioral Change Communication messages
  • 645 Males aged between 10 and 49 years supported to access Safe Male Circumcision.
  • 24,406 people (14,449 F & 9,957M) received HIV testing and counseling services.
  • 342,282 male and 1,995 female condoms were distributed.
  • 157 Dialogue meetings were facilitated to enable Key Population and Priority Population come up with practical actions to address health concerns and lead health lives. 60 female commercial sex workers, 150 adolescents, 120 PLWHIV, 30 Bodaboda riders and 15 discordant couples benefited. As a result, persons living with HIV/AIDS had a platform to share experiences, help each other to adopt safer sexual behaviour to contribute to HIV Prevention, adhere to drugs and reduce stigma. Female commercial sex workers formed associations through which they started supporting each other to look for alternative sources of income and access services and Bodaboda riders carried out HIV prevention sensitization meetings.
