Case study

Monya project

Monya Project – NAZ Project London and Newham PCT

Monya is a Swahili word for strength. The project aims to enable African MSM to face up to daily challenges such as immigration issues, education and employment and isolation, in addition to HIV risk and homophobia. Outreach workers engage with MSM in their local communities, informing them about the Monya Project by word-of-mouth. The Monya African MSM support group meets once a month, with participants sharing stories with other men about their lives and how they meet various challenges. Naz believes that men who are more confident and open about their sexuality are able to exercise greater control over HIV transmission when having sex with other men. Explicit HIV prevention components include provision of information and advice about sexual health, and encouragement towards HIV testing.
