With less than a week left before the world wide commemoration of World AIDS Day, Gay Kenya has embarked on 30 day campaign of sensitisation and creating awareness about HIV/AIDS within the most at risk populations (MARPS) in gearing up for the World AIDS Day on 1 December.
“The aim of the campaign is to sensitize the general population about the health issues faced by the most at risk populations, and to also educate the most at risk population about the health challenges that exist and also providing them with information on the services available”, said Denis Nzioka of Gay Kenya.
“The campaign will be website based and will feature stories, articles and general information on HIV/AIDS and MARPS. In addition, a link for a Health and Well-being page has been set up and will be the forum where health issues among MSMs and especially sexual minorities will be highlighted and possibly discussed”, reads a statement by Gay Kenya.
Celebrated since 1988, World AIDS Day is a worldwide event which aims to create increased awareness of the HIV/AIDS pandemic and according to Nzioka, the campaign also forms part of educating the general population on sexual minorities.
