The Expanding HIV Prevention and Care Services for Most-at-Risk Populations Through the Network Association of Harm Reduction in Egypt project aims to reduce HIV transmission among most-at-risk populations and increase care and support services to people in Egypt living with HIV. FHI 360 partners with three local nongovernmental organizations — Befrienders, Rooya and the Youth Association for Population and Development (YAPD) — in the Giza, Alexandria and Menoufia governorates to facilitate early detection and treatment of HIV and AIDS through the establishment of a comprehensive care center.
The project has three specific objectives:
- Strengthen the capacity of civil society organizations to carry out harm reduction activities and improve access to quality services in Egypt for most-at-risk populations and people living with HIV
- Enhance coordination of harm reduction projects in Egypt
- Reduce stigma and discrimination against most-at-risk populations and people living with HIV through advocacy efforts
