Working with the communities to reach the vulnerable population in Homa bay County

LVCT Vukisha95, engages the communities through holding meetings with the Community Advisory Board (CAB) across five Ministry of Health (MOH) integrated Drop in Centers (DiCEs) and two stand-alone DiCES implementing the Key Population (KP) program across six sub-counties in Homabay County.
The meetings seek to review program progress and share feedback with the communities on the implementation of the KP program, with the aim of enhancing service provision for KPs. The engagements also support the outreaches to different hotspots and continued uptake of HIV testing services, Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), family planning, counseling and distribution of commodities.
Community Advisory Board (CAB) meetings are a key pillar in the implementation of the HIV prevention program targeting KPs. The meetings enhance community engagements and provide a platform to create awareness for smooth program implementation.
LVCT Vukisha95, a five-year program funded by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is providing a comprehensive combination package for HIV prevention, care and treatment services to KPs through peer education and outreach and engagement with relevant stakeholders to increase access and availability of sustainable high quality comprehensive interventions for KPs.
