PHDA collaborates with several organizations to implement its programmes. Collaboration has had a huge impact on our work related to research, programme delivery, and health policies. Some of our key partners are:

Partnership with Government

  • PHDA has developed partnerships with the National AIDS and STI Control Programme (NASCOP) and the National AIDS Control Council (NACC) under the Ministry of Health. This formal partnership is in its 9th year and has helped in strengthening the HIV prevention programme in Kenya.
  • PHDA also works with the county governments in almost 37 counties through the technical support it provides for key population programmes. PHDA works closely with the Nairobi Metropolitan Services as it delivers health services through the SWOP clinics in Nairobi. This collaboration has helped in delivering harm reduction services and reducing gender-based violence among some of the marginalized populations in Nairobi.
