The interventions which NAPHAM carries out are guided by broad goal of reducing prevention among NAPHAM members and care providers. A wide range of interventions in prevention carried out mainly focus on provision of right kind of information through HIV and AIDS educational outreach and provision relevant IEC materials, mobilizing people to go for HIV counselling and testing (HCT), provision of relevant psychosocial support through group therapy sessions for both adults and children, home based care and also making referrals where necessary. NAPHAM also focuses on PMTCT by equipping its members and staff with information on PMTCT.Other interventions are conducted to enable children infected with HIV receive adequate and appropriate care and support. NAPHAM also seeks to improve the biological and psychological well being of members and their children.
