Our focus

CISP considers critical that HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment, care and support for people affected by HIV be integrated into the overall health care assistance to the Somali people. In particular, CISP’s intervention focuses in the coastal area of Central Somalia, where, due to the presence of pirates, the HIV/AIDS prevalence is higher than in surrounding regions.
