This project was initiated by CEDEP with the support of UNAIDS. Under this project CEDEP had sought to de-stigmatize HIV and AIDS by forming associations of People Living with HIV/AIDS (PLHIVs) in 6 communities in the country, regularly interacting with them and soliciting financial, material and skills supports for them.

 

CEDEP is the premier organization in Ghana to employ an HIV positive person to reinforce its HIV and AIDS campaign team and also showed the way to other people that PLHIVs are useful citizens of society. CEDEP also carried out intensive advocacy to lobby for government, public, community, family and individual support for PLHIVs.
