about us

Probono Publico therefore appeals to all organizations, individuals and entities that find common cause with it to support us morally, technically and financially to actualize its noble cause.

WHO WE WORK WITH

Probono Publico works with Key population to enable them access to justice, health related services, psycho -social support and crucially it engages in the struggle against stigma which is the major hindrance to the actualization of Key population rights, justice and health objectives.

OUR INTENTIONS

Probono Publico however doesn’t intend to replace or compete with existing organizations that seek to promote the rights of Key populations but to initiate a more bold, open, robust and coordinated response in the promotion of Key population rights, justice and access to public health programs.

OUR INTENTIONS

Probono Publico intends to protect Key populations from persecution, stigma, inaccessibility to health services, arbitrary arrests, marginalization, violence et al, indeed the prevailing hostile climate against key populations requires a coordinated and robust mechanism that targets legislative policy, penal law, cultural- religious bias and the official position.

OUR ADVOCACY

Probono Publico generally advocates for laws, policy, cultural-religious practices that  promote the dignity, liberties  rights and access to health  of Key populations.
