Pamoja is an HIV prevention and support programme for Africans, by Africans, living in Aotearoa New Zealand. The programme aims to encourage safer sex, regular testing and provide support for people who are living with HIV. It does this by empowering the community in a culturally appropriate way.
Pamoja carries on the work of Love Cover Protect – a programme set up in 2011 to support the African community in New Zealand around HIV and AIDS. It forms an important part of the New Zealand AIDS Foundation’s (NZAF) strategy to end new transmissions of HIV by 2025.
Pamoja focuses on three key areas in response to the latest developments in HIV prevention, medication and support: Protect Yourself, Test Often and Start Treatment.
