Founded in 2003, the National Empowerment Network of People Living with HIV/AIDS in Kenya (NEPHAK) brings together networks of people living with HIV (PLHIV), nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), community-based organizations (CBOs), and individuals to pursue common goals—improving the quality of life of PLHIV and increasing their involvement in the national HIV response.
Task Order 1 of the USAID | Health Policy Initiative has supported NEPHAK since 2006. The project's predecessor, the POLICY Project, helped facilitate the network's formation and assisted it during its first two years.This brief describes how the projects' support has helped NEPHAK emerge as a strong, sustainable institution, able to successfully champion the rights of PLHIV and others affected by the epidemic in Kenya.
