A UNIQUE PARTNERSHIP: THE OHR-GMCP INITIATIVE FOR HIV/AIDS

The OHR-GMCP Initiative for HIV/AIDS represents a unique partnership between the Organic Health Response and the Global-Micro Clinic Project (GMCP).  GMCP is a global organization that seeks to catalyze integrated health solutions around the globe using the power of an organic social network.  The partnership recognizes a shared vision for activating the force of social solidarity to implement sustainable community health strategies.  Through this partnership OHR is providing the necessary institutional, physical, and human infrastructure on Mfangano Island, Kenya that will support GMCP to implement the worlds first Micro-Clinic pilot for people living with HIV/AIDS.
This pilot program and partnership represents a best practices collaboration with a focus on scalability and expansion for similarly affected communities across East Africa and the globe.  In the past year, OHR has recruited a diverse team of  public health expert, researchers, and student volunteers in the US and UK to contribute energy towards health experts, research, and service projects for OHR and GMCP.  “The OHR-GMCP Initiative for HIV/AIDS” now represents a coalition of staff and volunteers based in the US that will support a local partnership between OHR and GMCP on the ground in Kenya.
