Health, HIV and AIDS Sector
HIV and AIDS is still one of the biggest challenges to development in Kenya. CARE works with communities, civil society organizations and the Govern-ment of Kenya to keep HIV transmission low, provide support to those who need it and treat those infected and affected with respect, acceptance and protection. Further, CARE’s focus is on strengthening the economic ability of women and youth while reducing stigma and discrimination. In this sector, CARE trains community organizations and individuals in a wide range of technical areas including HIV/AIDS issues and rights and legal redress channels. Numerous home-based caregivers are beneficiaries of such training. With improved skills, caregivers enhance the condition of the infected.
