Transcript

  • 1. GALZ BUDDIES GALZ HIV/AIDS and STI Prevention Programme Presented by Lewis Kunze Health Officer - GALZ
  • 2. Planning
    • The GALZ needs assessment report showed gaps in information for the prevention of STIs (including HIV) amongst GALZ members caused by economic hardships that discourage members from visiting the office.
    • In response, we advertised in our in-house publications for community volunteers in Harare and Bulawayo (buddies) who were willing to visit members in their homes and in places where members meet so as to gather and disseminate information and hand out prevention barriers like condoms.
  • 3. Buddy Group Training
    • Members where chosen according to geographical areas and personal maturity and were trained in the following areas:
      • Reducing risks of STI/HIV transmission amongst MSM/WSW
      • Mobilising the community to be involved in the project
      • Encouraging positive living amongst our membership
  • 4. Implementation
    • Contracts and terms of reference were drawn up.
    • Buddies were assigned to work in pairs of one men and one women.
    • Buddies aim to make at least 2 visits a week.
    • After each visit they write a report detailing what they have done and giving recommendations.
  • 5. Buddy Business
    • On each visit buddies carry condoms and KY jelly.
    • Each week buddies fill in a distribution form so we can track the number of people who have received condoms.
    • At bi-monthly meetings volunteers share experiences and ideas and identify capacity gaps.
    • Officers conduct regular monitoring visits to check on quality and progress
  • 6.
