‘Empowering communities to effectively fight the AIDS pandemic'
The negative social and economic impacts of HIV/AIDS are increasingly severe. Many children whose parents have died of AIDS lack the basic necessities for survival. Traditional extended family care structures are overburdened and there is need for the community at large to set in and provide care and treatment for the infected and affected in the society. The community cannot offer this services if not empowered financially and educationally to combat the AIDS pandemic. Since NACC is not an implementing organ, it channels funds to the communities, thus empowering them to mitigate the social and economic impacts of HIV/AIDS and prevent further infections.
The National AIDS Control Council disburses funds to registered NGOs, CBOs, FBOs, Private Sector and Public Sector organizations
