WAAF is currently embarking on a new project that is to be funded by the Global Fund. The project is working under a new funding model of Community Systems Strengthening (CSS). The Global Fund approved Ghana's HIV /TB concept note and therefore allocated funds to the country to implement programs related to HIV and TB. We are very excited to partner with the National Association of Persons Living with HIV (NAP+) to carry out Ghana’s plan for CSS.
WAAF has recently partnered with the Commission for Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) to create demand and uptake of the web based discrimination reporting system. The project consisted of several parts. First WAAF and CHRAJ collaborated in order to develop a protocol to use to conduct trainings in five regions so that People Living with HIV (PLs), Members of the Key Population and healthcare providers could be trained in the area of fundamental human rights and also on the reporting system.
WAAF, together with CEPEHRG and MICDAK, represented Ghana at a Dissemination Meeting in South Africa on the World Health Organization Key Populations Guidelines. The meeting was hosted by Anova Health Institute, the Global Forum on MSM and HIV (MSMGF), COC Nederland, African Men for Sexual Health and Rights (AMSHeR), AVAC, the World Health Organization, and the USAID/FHI 360 Linkages Program.
