Mini Grants to Support Advocacy Campaigns

Mini Grants to Support Advocacy Campaigns

Deadline: 9-Jun-21

The Caribbean Vulnerable Communities Coalition (CVC) and its partners Pan Caribbean Partnership Against HIV and AIDS (PANCAP) and El Centro de Orientación e Investigación Integral (COIN), has announced the applications for Mini-Grants to Support Advocacy Campaigns focused on reducing the incident and impact of gender-based and intimate partner violence on key population groups.

This project provides a unique opportunity to institutionalize partnerships between civil society and governments to achieve and sustain effective programs that meet the needs of key populations (KPs) and diminish the HIV epidemic.

GBV and IPV are pervasive in the Caribbean and require urgent action at the highest level. In addition data indicates significantly higher rates of HIV prevalence among key populations in the Caribbean and the limited access to support programmes that address their specific needs.

Understanding and addressing the broader gender-based aspect of this problem will also allow them to strengthen the networks and combine the resources of the groups that are working to dismantle gender-based discrimination and advance the human rights of sexual and gender minorities.

They will not make sustainable gains against the HIV epidemic if they do not also address the violence that key populations experience at the hands of family, community members, health care providers and police.
