With funding from the Federal Republic of Germany through KfW, CEMAC (Communauté Economique et Monétaire dAfrique Centrale), through its implementing agency OCEAC (Organization de Coordination pour la lutte contre les Endémies en Afrique Centrale), has launched the Projet de Prévention de VIH/SIDA en Afrique Centrale (PPSAC). The fifth phase covers six countries: Cameroon, Chad, Central African Republic, Congo, Equatorial Guinea and Gabon. The Association Centrafricaine de Marketing Social (ACAMS), the social marketing organization in the Central African Republic, was the recipient of these funds for the implementation of Phase V of this project in the Central African Republic. The GFA was designed to support ACAMS in achieving its objectives.

The overall objective was to contribute to reducing the rate of HIV infection, unwanted pregnancies and transmission of sexually transmitted diseases, and to reduce the stigma and social marginalization of PLWHA through sustainable behavior change and condom use among targeted populations, including youth and groups at high risk of AIDS transmission. The project outcomes were:

  1. Increased condom use
  2. More social acceptance of people living with HIV (PLWHA)
  3. Increased access to condoms
  4. The target groups knowledge and attitudes towards HIV/AIDS and sexuality was improved
  5. Increased public awareness of the rights of PLWHA
