The Ihangane Project supports community-initiated projects that improve HIV prevention, education, diagnosis, and treatment in local communities. Projects may be directly related to HIV, such as interventions that increase access to HIV testing or integrate HIV services with other services like malnutrition. The projects may also be indirectly related to HIV through projects such as those that support the socioeconomic empowerment of high risk groups. We work with the project leaders to incorporate a system of monitoring and evaluation into each project, as well to consider issues of long term sustainability. We are currently focusing our efforts in the Northern Province of Rwanda, and are working with medical professionals and women’s groups to support programs proposed by local people to bridge the gaps in their communities’ HIV prevention, education, diagnosis and treatment programs.
