HIV & AIDS People's Alliance of Kenya (HAPA Kenya)
The HIV & AIDS People's Alliance of Kenya was established in September 2011 after it emerged that a significant number of MSM/MSW living with HIV in the region were not adhering to treatment. It was from this that community members established a platform through which to demystify the myths related to HIV care and treatment and address other social cultural deterrents to access and adherence to treatment including stigma and discrimination . HAPA Kenya was later registered in December 2011.
Mission: To ensure mobilization and coordination of resources for the prevention of HIV transmission and provision of care and support to the positively living MSM/MSW community in Mombasa County.
Vision: Empowered HIV positive MSM/MSW community.
