An empowered society with ability to respond to HIV/AIDS and its impacts.
NIRP seeks to contribute to a process of Preventing HIV infection, restoring hope and improving the quality of life of persons families and communities affected by HIV infection and AIDS.
Our goal is to improve the quality of life of people living with HIV and strengthen their engagement in the response to the epidemic.
How does NIRP this change can happen?
NIRP believes that communities affected with HIV know best what services they need and what changes are required to transform their lives and those of their families. We believe that stigma and discrimination are among the greatest barriers to change, and that there are wider factors in society influencing the spread of HIV, such as unequal gender relations.
NIRP believes that the quality of life of people living with HIV can be improved by:
• Providing and enabling access to comprehensive services for people with HIV and their families
• Building the capacity of people living with HIV to respond to the epidemic
• Advocating for and supporting policy work which leads to improvements of the lives of people with HIV and their families
