At least 50% of SPAU’s members are people living with HIV/AIDS. At least 90% of SPAU members come from families that are affected by HIV/AIDS. Single parents -especially women- are also considered at a high risk of catching HIV/AIDS in the communities in which they live. SPAU designs programs for women, men, and young people of all ages; to explore their social needs, to analyse the communication barriers that they face, and to practise different and better ways of addressing their relationships and changing their behaviour, both individually and collectively to mitigate the effects of HIV/AIDS . SPAU also supports communities in remote areas of operation to access direct HIV/AIDS services.
