Background

The Continuum of prevention, care and treatment (CoPCT) of HIV/AIDS with Most-at-risk Populations in Cameroon (CHAMP) project, funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) under Cooperative Agreement No. AID-624-A-14-00003, began on April 15, 2014. The program is implemented by CARE International. In collaboration with PEPFAR agencies, the Government of Cameroon, the Global Fund, and other key stakeholders, CHAMP works in tandem with community-based partners to strengthen and expand human rights-affirming, evidence-based, client-friendly HIV prevention, care, and treatment services for men who have sex with men (MSM), female sex workers (FSW) and their children, and sex worker clients in Cameroon.

The program aims to increase demand for, and access to, quality community and clinical services by reinforcing and expanding the creation of safe, friendly, competent community-led platforms, and integrating interventions within the larger services network. CHAMP was recently awarded additional funding to support civil society organizations (CSOs) working in gender and human rights in Cameroon to develop effective and sustainable prevention and response interventions to address key population-related stigma, discrimination, and violence. Specifically, the funding is intended to complement existing advocacy interventions by: a) building the institutional capacity of CSOs to design, implement, monitor, report on, and ensure the sustainability of KP and LGBTI advocacy, stigma and discrimination, and violence prevention and response programming; b) building the capacity of CSOs and LGBTI platforms to protect the physical and cyber security of key population / LGBTI individuals; and c) develop safe spaces for victims or potential victims of violence.
