MSA – DIVA(Global Fund Project)

DIVA Project aim to addresss the following :

Vulnerability to HIV among transgender/hijra persons remains high compared to other high risk groups. High prevalence and incidence of HIV among transgender/hijra persons has increased their socio-economic vulnerability. With funding support from the United Nations Development Programme – Asia Pacific Regional Centre (UNDP-APRC), Voluntary Health Services (VHS) initiated the MSA-DIVA project to address the vulnerability of transgender/hijra persons and improve their quality of life. The program is supported by The Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (GFATM).

The three main areas of focus of this project are: (i) Creating an enabling environment through sensitization programs; (ii) Building capacities of transgender/hijra persons intervention teams; and (iii) Advocating for policy level changes.

MSA-DIVA project is providing technical support for effective implementation of the Transgender/Hijra Targeted Intervention (TG-TI) program in selected states under NACP IV, with guidance from the National AIDS Control Organization (NACO) and in partnership with State AIDS Control Societies (SACS). The project also advocates for the promotion and protection of rights of transgender/hijra persons.
