Care and Support

Capacity building, research and documentation
This programme is set to promote and enhance the skills of MMAAK staff within the secretariat together with members of MMAAK as a support group. The Movement builds the skills of its constituents and other implementing partners, so that they are better equipped to deal with problems and issues that arise in implementation of activities. The thematic areas that MMAAK has a bias in includes: Home based care, Advocacy, counseling, men involvement in HIV/AIDS Prevention care and support, nutrition and treatment literacy.

Research and methodology development
The Research component within the capacity building programme is not oriented to pure or clinical research, but rather to operational research. This covers Monitoring & Evaluation, feasibility studies,

participatory rural appraisals, participatory people appraisal and participatory urban appraisal. This is done for partners who require and enlist MMAAK to do the research for them, before embarking on a new project. And as for pure research participation is done with the full consent of the client, who after being informed is allowed to participate out of choice. MMAAK does so not directly but by forming partnerships and collaborations with research institutions. read more...

MMAAK managed to reach out to more than 2 million people during the year 2004 both through the Media and through outreaches in the community and in schools. read more...
