Husika

The goal of Husika is to develop and implement behaviour change communications with the objective of reducing risky sexual behaviours and further lowering HIV/AIDS prevalence rates. The prime contractor is PSI.

Former pilot projects, such as the hair salon initiative (Jipende! Centres for Women's Health) and sex worker outreach (Jipende Grants Program) will also be reactivated, strengthened and scaled up under Husika.
