Small Grants program is held under the project “Coordinated, strategic, and resolute: MSM and transgender networks united” with the financial support of the Robert Carr civil society Networks Fund (RCNF).

The project is designed to support the global efforts to alleviate the impact of HIV and AIDS among gay men and other MSM and trans* populations around the world and to enable gay men and MSM and trans* individuals to safely seek HIV care and services.

 

The Goal of the Small Grants Program “Together for Our Rights” is to contribute to

  • reducing the level of stigma and discrimination, and human rights violations experienced by gay men and other MSM, and trans* people in healthcare settings, in particular in HIV services

  • Work with healthcare workers and officials to overcome stigma and discrimination, and mitigate human rights violations in healthcare settings, including in HIV services;
  • Participate in health policy-making at local and national levels.
