Artisanal & Small-Scale Miners: HIV/AIDS & Health

The project is being implemented in seven villages in four wards surrounding the North Mara Gold Mine. This project strengthened the linkage between HIV community-based care services and clinical services provided at health facilities to artisanal and small-scale mining families living in remote, underserved areas. New community home based care (HBC) providers are were trained to engage in community-based HIV prevention activities and patient mobilization for increased HIV counseling and testing services including couple counseling, HIV testing for pregnant women and uptake of PMTCT services. Clinical health workers at the Nyarwana Health Center, Nyamongo Dispensary (Kerende), Nyamwaga Dispensary, Genkuru Dispensary, Gibaso Dispensary, and North Mara Mine Clinic are being trained for expansion of HIV prevention, care and treatment services.
