FEATURED PROJECT

“REDUCING GENDER-BASED VIOLENCE & ACHIEVING POSITIVE PEACE BY EMPOWERING WOMEN AFFECTED AND INFECTED WITH HIV IN THE SLUMS OF KISUMU, KENYA”

Gender-based violence (GBV) is one of the most continuous violations of human rights across the globe. According to the World Health Organization, a high prevalence of violence is associated with higher rates of HIV infection among marginalized populations. Evidence shows that living with HIV constitutes a pronounced risk factor for experiencing GBV. / Many women in Sub-Saharan Africa, like Kenya, are disproportionately affected by HIV. In 2016 alone, 34,000 adult women were infected with HIV, compared with 22,000 adult men.
