UPDATE: The coalition of anti-AIDS organizations that is offering $2 million to combat HIV in the LGBT communities of Mozambique is planning a conference call on Monday, Jan. 23, during which people can learn the details of the application process.
For more general information about the battle against HIV in Mozambique, see the article “$2m targets HIV in Mozambique’s LGBT communities.”
Mozambique repealed its anti-LGBT law in 2015, but social stigma against sexual minorities remains strong, which often excludes LGBT people from health care. The application deadline for the grant is Jan. 31, 2017.
This is the announcement of the conference call:
Conference Call – Q&A – LGBT Fund Deep Engagement Grant for Mozambique

The Fund continues existing initiatives to end stigma, discrimination and violence against LGBT individuals, by working with community leaders, civil society, and service providers to create environments that promote health and well-being.
Staff from the Elton John AIDS Foundation and OGAC will participate in the call to provide information and help answer questions related to the Request for Proposals, which is available at https://london.ejaf.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/Opportunity-Announcement-Deep-Engagement-Grant-for-Mozambique.pdf
