The project targeted HIV prevention activities. It supported political mobilization at federal level and primary prevention initiatives with the aim of preventing the spread of HIV/AIDS and limiting the effects of the epidemic.
The project promoted the commitment of political and business leaders and opinion makers in order to secure higher resources for combating HIV/AIDS, reduce stigmatization and support the development of multi-sectoral and coordinated national and regional HIV/AIDS programmes. It will also develop primary prevention campaigns in two regions including promoting knowledge about how people can be motivated to change unsafe sexual behaviour and promoting access to voluntary counseling.
