Strengthening Communities Through Support and Collaboration

At NACOPHA, we believe in the power of community and the importance of providing a supportive network for people living with HIV. Our Empowerment Groups and Clusters are central to this mission, offering a safe space for individuals to share experiences, gain strength, and work collectively towards common goals. These groups foster solidarity, enhance social support, and empower members to take charge of their health and well-being.
