Health

The Community Health and HIV/AIDS Project (CHHAP) aims to support global and national efforts to ensure that all Namibians have long and healthy lives. There are three key areas to CHHAP efforts: HIV prevention, care and support services and youth sexual and reproductive health. Target achievements for the next five years are as follows:

HIV Prevention

CHHAP volunteers intend to work with 7,924 individuals [adults, youth, PLWH (people living with HIV/AIDS), most-at-risk populations, orphans and vulnerable children, serodiscordant couples and others] to prevent the transmission of HIV through trainings, workshops, one-on-one mentoring, sports groups, clubs, schools, health promotion and other activities related to HIV prevention.

Care and Support Services

CHHAP volunteers expect to work with 3,750 people living with HIV/AIDS and their caregivers to improve the well-being of PLWH and strengthen caregivers’ knowledge and skills through trainings, workshops, one-on-one mentoring, case management, referral services, management of care groups, health promotion and other activities related to HIV care and treatment.

Youth Sexual and Reproductive Health

CHHAP volunteers will teach 7,000 youth, students or peer educators to empower young people to make better choices and prevent teen pregnancies, sexually transmitted infections and alcohol and substance abuse through outreach, trainings, workshops one-on-one mentoring, sports groups, clubs, schools, health promotion and other activities.
