To reduce the sexual transmission of HIV/AIDS along the Atlantic Ocean coast of CEMAC countries
- Determination of the level of knowledge, attitudes and practices of the target groups on HIV/AIDS;
- Sensitization of target groups;
- Establishment of social marketing for condoms;
- Reinforcement of medico-psycho-social care capacities.
Within the framework of this project, there was development of a cooperation between the partners (IOM, AMS, COREP/ECCAS, FAO, PAIBLT, IFCOC, CICOS, CGPL, RAP+ AC, MINEPIA…) and OCEAC�; which resulted in the establishment of a collaboration platform called Inter-Agency Consultation Meeting (RCIA).
The last session of the RCIA, held in March 2010, enabled the development of terms of reference for the feasibility of a socio-epidemiological study for the establishment of a program to reduce the vulnerability of fishing communities and surrounding populations to STIs/HIV/AIDS and to strengthen their reproductive health, in Central Africa (for fishing) period 2012-2015). These ToRs were validated during a restricted meeting of the members of the RCIA. The fundraising process is underway for the start of the study.
