Over the course of a 6-month curriculum, each self-chosen group completed trainings to empower themselves in topics from HIV pathology & adherence to the effects of deforestation on the health of their community, with a last session focused on group testing. Acting as living examples for Lake Victoria, these “microclinics” are among the first to disclose their HIV status to one another, building a one-of-a-kind social support network on an island with a 30% HIV infection rate, one of the highest on this planet.
