Probono Publico provides a platform that links Key populations that are highly susceptible to HIV with providers of health services and offers legal aid services for the Key populations under the care of those organizations. Through its expansive networks with Key populations. particularly MSM, Probono Publico is able to create and /or enhance demand for organizations already offering health services for the said Key populations. The organization doesn’t compete or duplicate, but compliments the activities of like organizations, that include but may not be limited to sensitization of the general population on Key populations rights to justice, human rights and health care, while also engaging in outreach programs to redress the scourge of stigma by putting a “HUMAN FACE” on Key populations particularly MSM that bear the biggest blunt of stigma.
Probono Publico is appreciative of the pivotal role networks have played in seeking to galvanize support and efforts to bolster effectiveness in the fight for the protection and promotion of civil liberties, human rights and access to justice for marginalized Key populations, therefore we work with Public Interest Litigators (NETPIL) in an effort to redress stigma, injustices, abuse of human rights that are a key barrier to accessibility to specialized health care for Key populations.
In summary Probono Publico’s key objective is to raise the bar and the profile of activism, advocacy and public interest litigation as tools for the transformation of policies, laws, religious- cultural practices that perpetuate stigma, marginalization and persecution of Key populations.
In addition to the coordination and establishment of constructive networks to foster civil rights protection and human rights of Key populations, we appreciate the immense value of being a part of already existing networks and coalitions that have established themselves in the protection and empowerment of Key populations. In this regard, we seek to coordinate, compliment and collectively execute a more robust approach to actualize the objectives of Key populations with existing partners and like-minded organizations.
