    • Project

      The Scale-up the capacity of women living with HIV/AIDS and awareness campaign for risk communities (SWAC) project produces media such as short videos and documentaries sharing stories of those infected with HIV/AIDS as a means to boost confidence, confirm normalcy in living while sensitising the general public that discrimination is wrong. This project is an extended phase of the previous Voice project ‘Empower the hidden voices of women living with HIV/AIDS‘ that provided support through technical training to HIV positive women, men and Men Having Sex with Men (MSMs) who are organised in self-help groups and working in local hospitals.
      This project undertakes several activities to disseminate knowledge on risk groups to prevent further infections in Vientiane Capital and six other target provinces: Luangnamtha, Borkeo, Luang Prabang, Houaphanh, Oudomxay, and Xayaboury. This increases their knowledge and empowers the target audience to recognise and understand their condition as well as ensure that they feel comfortable. The project also ensures that they have access to information and are properly and appropriately cared for. In addition to this, the project will also enable the administrative restructuring of the association so that it can be relevant to the current context. The purpose of this is to increase the participation of young people within the association, as well as their recruitment.
