Community Health Alliance Uganda (CHAU) working with International HIV/AIDS Alliance (IHAA) in Brighton UK through a grant from the Swedish Embassy in Uganda is soliciting for applications to fund Ugandan CBOs to design and implement a four year (July 2017-2021) comprehensive integrated Sexual and Reproductive Health and HIV services program (hereafter referred as the Uganda SRHR Umbrella program). The project aims to contribute to improved SRHR and HIV outcomes in 14 districts of; Kampala, Mukono, Jinja, Iganga, Buyende, Mubende, Luwero, Nakaseke, Hoima, Kyenjojo, Kamwenge Kabarole, Mbarara and Ntungamo. The SRHR Umbrella Program is designed to respond to the SRHR and HIV needs of vulnerable populations in Uganda with unmet SRHR and HIV needs with a priority on children aged 10 to 14, adolescents aged 15-19 years, and young men and women aged 20-24; and key populations (MSM, SWs, truckers and fishing communities).
Through the Uganda SRHR Umbrella Program, CBOs will be supported to work closely with community structures to foster a community driven response towards increased demand for and access to sexual reproductive health and rights services including Family Planning, screening and treatment of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision (VMMC), HIV testing services (HTS), and linkages to HIV treatment, care and support services.
