Building vibrant and tolerant democracies
Bomme Isago was registered as a membership organisation in 2006 to address the sexual and reproductive health and rights challenges faced by women infected with, and affected by, HIV.
These challenges included the limited access to sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services; stigma and discrimination; the women’s limited knowledge of or access to information about their sexual and reproductive health, and rights and/or lack of capacity or confidence to demand them; and socio-cultural barriers to women in exercising their sexual and reproductive health, and rights.
Bomme Isago seeks to contribute primarily through advocacy and community outreach. It sees these strategies as essential to having a meaningful, effective and long term impact by facilitating changes in legislation, policy and programming, and building community support.
In these interventions, Bomme Isago sees as critical the active involvement of its membership to give human faces, and voices, to the issues.ShareThis
