We’re on the frontline of HIV prevention and treatment in Cote d’Ivoire, helping to reach displaced communities left without proper services.
A combination of political and military turmoil in Cote d’Ivoire over the past decade has caused enormous disruption to the country’s healthcare system. This has left half a million people living with HIV with limited access to HIV care and treatment.
We’re working here to help fill some of the gaps left by this upheaval.
DID YOU KNOW?
- 12.3% of men who have sex with men (MSM) are living with HIV, and only 13.3% of these people know their HIV status.
- HIV prevalence in adults is 2.6%
We have worked with Alliance Cote d’Ivoire since 2005, supporting community groups that are trying to respond to HIV in the places where infrastructure – health and otherwise – is extremely limited.
The risk of new HIV infection is a serious concern, because so many displaced people now live in camps where there is a severe lack of access to HIV prevention information.
Alliance Cote d’Ivoire focuses on helping to strengthen existing – and develop new – community networks in order to connect people living with HIV with the treatment they need and to share life-saving prevention information so that the country can reduce the number of people dying from AIDS-related illness.
One of the ways Frontline AIDS supports Alliance Cote d’Ivoire is to improve their resource mobilisation, enabling them to win projects and funding to deliver more programmes and services.
