The goal of the AMURT’s Kenya Integrated HIV/AIDS Program is to prevent the transmission of HIV/AIDS, and to bring sustainable services to those infected and affected by HIV and AIDS in nine locations within three Kenyan provinces (Nyanza, Central and Coast). To achieve this goal AMURT has developed the following strategic objectives:
• Mobilize local organizations and committees, and community members to create sustainable support structures for 3,000 orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) aged 5 – 14 years, enabling them to become productive members of society.
• Improve treatment, care, and livelihood for 1,000 people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) in Nyanza Province
• Provide opportunities for behavior change, leadership development and vocational training to 2,000 out-of-school youth aged 14 to 25
• Launch a mass education prevention and awareness program that reaches 999,100 people, to protect those who are not infected by HIV.
