Family Awareness Consciousness Togetherness (FACT), an NGO based in Corriverton, Guyana, focuses their efforts on the effects of HIV on family units. FACT seeks to bridge gaps in HIV service delivery by collaborating with other service providers, government agencies, faith-based organizations, NGOs, community leaders, and all stakeholders.
Through a grant awarded under Advancing Partners & Communities (APC), FACT promotes behavioral change communication, risk reduction, and risk assessment for key populations. The organization provides family planning services, HIV testing and counseling, referrals for other sexually transmitted infections, and care and support for HIV positive and orphans and vulnerable children. Through their efforts, FACT hopes to address cross-cutting issues such as stigma and discrimination as well as sexual and gender-based violence.
