From initiation, our work has focused on prevention of HIV transmission among young, migrant men employed in the diamond cutting and polishing industry. The vulnerability to HIV infections is often greatest when people find themselves in conditions of poverty, powerlessness and social instability. Fifteen years on, we have reached more than 250,000 workers with prevention education.
While we continue to engage with our key stakeholders, a community development model has emerged which encompasses awareness building, counseling, treatment and care services, economic and other support to families. The project also provided a platform to facilitate the state network of people living with HIV and AIDS and capacity building of other NGOs. Our current work includes additional target groups such as sex workers and men having sex with men (MSM).
