Kabangwe Creative Initiative Association: MALE PARTICIPATION IN SRH -HIV AWARENESS

MALE PARTICIPATION IN SRH -HIV AWARENESS

Provision of correct and up to date Sexual reproductive health information promotes access to and uptake of HIV services. Men are taking action especially after being engaged on various matters where they share experiences. HIV counselling and testing is offered and the uptake is always encouraging....
The interesting part is that our community sessions are basically demand driven. This is because the target audience is usually consulted on what topics or issues should be discussed of course in line with our project focus and this has helped to lay a foundation of sustainability. Those who need further services are then referred to either Chazanga, Shifwankula clinic or another clinic of their choice.

C3 CONTINENTAL SUMMIT-ENTEBBE, UGANDA 5th-7th December 2016

The 2016 C3 Continental Summit was held in Entebbe, Uganda from the 5th -7th December. A total of 36 teams from 9 different countries converged to share lessons learnt. The teams were from Ethiopia, DRC, Malawi, Zimbabwe, Senegal and Uganda. Others were Nigeria, Kenya and Zambia.
The summit this time around focused on sharing experiences of the C3 programme (Clinic-CBO Collaboration), learn about others working in the field and plans ways forward. Facilities and community-based organisations (CBOs) continue to operate in silos due to limited structural mechanisms that effectively facilitate and coordinate meaningful engagement between them.
It is against this background that PATA in partnership with the Positive Action for Children Fund partnered to facilitate this process which culminated in the holding of this summit.
The summit was officially opened by Dr Cordelia from the Ministry of Health, Uganda on the 5th of December 2016. Thereafter, summit overview was given by Luan Hatane which was followed by presentations/ session chaired by Dominic Kemps from the Positive Action for Children Fund.

Overally all the teams interacted very well and shared experiences and the way forward was made.
KCIA and Chazanga clinic had a chance to make a presentation as well as a panel discussion as a C3 sportlight project. It was such an honour to have been given such an opportunity among the many projects across the nine countries.

The team therefore wishes once again to thank the organiser for giving us such a great opportunity.Representatives included: Frederick Lizubuho, Maureen Tembo and Eugene Mupakile.
