In its capacity of technical advocacy partner, Y+ Global lead on generating greater accountability of decision makers to the needs of A&YPLHIV is contingent on providing the evidence that is compelling and well communicated.
The project aims to reach 30, 000 A&YPLHIV in the mentioned countries through increased access to holistic care and support: promoting not only sexual reproductive health (SRHR) but also mental health in order to foster resilience.
READY+ is funded by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Maputo, and led by Frontline AIDS in partnership with Y+ Global, AFRICAID/Zvandiri, Coordinating Assembly of NGOs in Swaziland (CANGO), Global Network of People Living with HIV (GNP+), M&C Saatchi World Services, Paediatric AIDS Treatment for Africa (PATA), and the Regional Psychosocial Support Initiative (REPSSI).
The project demands the meaningful engagement of young key populations in the Global Fund processes at national and global level. The project is being implemented in Asia and the Pacific, Africa and Eastern Europe, specifically, while the outreach is global. Y+ Global is leading this project in South Africa, Zambia, Nigeria and Burundi.
The Count Me In project is being funded by the Global Fund and implemented by a consortium of regional and global networks of young key population that is Youth LEAD, Y+ Global and Youth RISE.
This is a consortium of four regional and global networks working on HIV under the Robert Carr Fund grant for 2019 – 2021. Y+ Global, Youth LEAD, Y PEER and Youth RISE formed 4Youth in 2019. The consortium aims to advance global efforts on youth in the HIV response through the strengthening of networks.
Young People are engaged locally, regionally and internationally and need to be safe, respected and valued hence the need to come up with a set of guidelines for the engagement of young people in activism and advocacy to be implemented internationally.
The project is being supported by ViiV healthcare Positive action
Bridging the Gap Alliance increased demand for and uptake of SRHR/HIV services by young key populations. The Young, Wild and Free (YWF) project was born through which good practices will be scaled up with the aim of reaching and engaging young key populations in Kenya, Russia, South Africa and Vietnam. The Bridging the Gaps Alliance (BtG) is a partnership focusing on the health and human rights of key populations: sex workers, people who use drugs and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people. Bridging the Gaps works towards a world where sex workers, people who use drugs and LGBT people can enjoy their human rights and access quality HIV prevention, treatment and care, contributing to the end of AIDS among key populations.
The project is being funded by The Dutch Ministry of Foreigner Affairs through the Bridging the Gap Alliance
