Rebuilding Hope: Polyclinic of Hope Care and Treatment Project, Rwanda
Thousands of local nongovernment organizations (NGOs) are working to help Kenyans better protect themselves and change practices that contribute to the HIV epidemic, including sexual and gender-based violence (GBV), early marriage, cross-generational, and transactional sex, in addition to poor health-seeking behavior. Yet NGOs often lack the know-how and resources to be effective in preventing HIV. The Polyclinic of Hope in Rwanda takes a comprehensive approach to combating gender-based violence for genocide survivors affected by HIV by facilitating support groups, encouraging income generation activities and providing HIV testing and treatment services.
