The Linden Care Foundation emerged from the Regional AIDS Committee in 2001 to work towards the prevention and reduction of HIV/AIDS and sexually transmitted infections (STI). Through the implementation of several youth-targeted awareness programs, the Linden Care Foundation aims to reduce the spread of HIV in Region 10 of Guyana. The organization also provides care and support services for people living with HIV (PLHIV), including children living with or affected by HIV.
Through a grant awarded under Advancing Partners & Communities (APC), the Linden Care Foundation provides care and support and prevention services for men who have sex with men (MSM), commercial sex workers, miners, loggers, and Amerindians. These services include adherence counseling, vocational and entrepreneurial skills training, capacity building and life skills, nutritional education, and psychosocial support. The program will also include reproductive health education and PMTCT Plus sessions for key populations.
