Comprehensive Health and Mental health services

The overall objective: is to improve access to comprehensive, cost-effective, client-focused, quality healthcare and mental health services among GBMSM/MSWs in the Lake region of Kenya. We will utilize our drop-in center and integrated government facilities to provide holistic health services while layering other services including HIV, STI, SGBV and other comorbidities.

The HIV space is rapidly growing with new technologies for prevention including PrEP, HIVST and care and treatment. The communities we serve are already marginalized, thus mental health continues to be a major problem that needs to be addressed. We will integrate mental health assessment and counseling within our routine services with referral systems established for those requiring specialized support. We aim to be a site for piloting new interventions targeting the GBMSM/MSWs.
