AMREF/MAANISHA  
AMREF/MAANISHA provided both financial and technical support to MMAAK
The technical support provided by AMREF/MAANISHA was relevant in that Project officers and project accountant were able to gain knowledge on project implementation, financial reporting and the need to meet reporting deadlines.

Some of the key objectives of this project were to  advocate for improved interventions for people infected and affected by HIV and AIDS through increased male involvement, to prevent new  HIV infection amongst the target community through Education and Capacity Building, to provide care and economic and psychological support for the community and specifically men living with HIV/AIDS through vocational training and establishment of linkages to micro-finance programmes.

MMAAK targeted Manyatta which is located in Kisumu East Constituency and Dunga beach which is situated within Winam District Wiman Division East Kolwa Division Nyalenda B sub-location with an approximate 75,000 population.

To achieve its objectives MMAAK carried out several activities namely Dialogue forum, Sensitization Workshops, Training Workshops, and Home visits for clients who were either on treatment or Home based care.

MMAAK would like to acknowledge and appreciate the support from AMREF/MMAANISHA though it was not adequate but have seen the activities challenge male perception of HIV and AIDS and have increased male involvement into prevention care and support of HIV/AIDS.
