Addressing HIV and Gender from the Ground Up: A Program to Build the Capacity of Civil Society Organizations
Submitted by Jennifer Pearson on 20 December 2011
In Kenya, the government's work against HIV is supplemented frequently by civil society organizations. These organizations, however, are often faced with a lack of available funding and knowledge. The Maanisha Community Focused Initiative, a program that works in many of Kenya's provinces, works to provide CSOs with both grants and capacity building in all HIV program areas while simultaneously addressing multiple gender-related issues.
