What Does JN+ Do?
JN+ receives complaints of HIV-related stigma and discrimination. JN+ has engaged in other activities and continues to do so as resources become available:
- Provide information and referrals for treatment, care and support
- Conduct skills training, and other capacity building activities as funds are available
- Educate persons on HIV and PLHIV-related issues through partner agreements
- Promote advocacy for the rights and concerns of people living with HIV
- Maintain alliances for collaboration
Members of JN+ become part of a national network of persons living with HIV who can participate in JN+'s mission to advocate for the rights and concerns of people living with and affected by HIV and AIDS. Members can report incidents of discrimination, participate in JN+-held activities, as funds are available, and may participate in existing support groups within their region, or one of four regions overseen by the Ministry of Health . Members can also nominate board members of the organisation.
GIPA Capacity Building Programme: partnership, empowerment and resource mobilisation
JN+ has a collaborative agreement with the Greater Involvement of People living with AIDS (GIPA) National Capacity Building Programme, an advocacy and education training programme to reduce HIV-related stigma and discrimination, including gender-based violence. The agreement enables information sharing between the GIPA unit of the Ministry of Health's Enabling Environment and Human Rights and JN+ to collaborate with other established entities on matters relating to advocacy and wellbeing of members and people living with and affected by HIV.
