Kid’s Sun Group is a community-based organization (CBO), based in Hanoi, of people living with HIV and key affected populations in Viet Nam.
Founded on January 15, 2008, the group has been designing programs to respond to their communities’ needs for over seven years. Staffed and led by people living with HIV (PLHIV) and key affected populations, the organization focuses on HIV prevention for youth at high risk of contracting HIV, and on reducing the levels of stigma and discrimination experienced by PLHIV and KPs–such as Viet Nam’s LGBT communities, sex workers, and people who use drugs. The organization’s vision is: to become a fully sustainable CBO conducting successful evidence-based advocacy that helps protect the rights of PLHIV and KPs in accessing treatment.
Together with Asia Catalyst, Kid’s Sun Group is quickly realizing this goal. (more…)
