In Namibia 13% of the population are living with HIV. Marginalised groups, including men who have sex with men, sex workers and people who inject drugs, are at higher risk of HIV infection.
We work with Positive Vibes in Namibia to provide care and support for people living with HIV and target those most at risk of HIV infection with prevention information and activities. In 2014 they supported nearly 10,000 people with care and support programmes. Positive Vibes supports community based self-help groups for people living with HIV, providing HIV information for members and helping them deal with stigma and discrimination. They are also working with other NGOs and government offices to build supportive environments for staff living with HIV.
Positive Vibes also hosts the largest national LGBT group, OutRight, to provide support and prevention information for the LGBT community.
