Under health programs we have advocacy and capacity building projects that we implement. They include
- Thyroid and Prostate Cancer advocacy project
We want to create awareness about prostate cancer and thyroid cancer. If it’s caught early and treated, thyroid cancer can be one of the most curable forms of cancer. The thyroid is shaped like a small butterfly, and is usually found inside the lower front of the neck. It’s a gland that controls your metabolism. It also releases hormones that direct many functions in your body, including how you use energy, how you produce heat, and how you consume oxygen. We have an ex thyroid cancer warrior who uses her experiences to enlighten the community.
Prostate cancer is cancer that occurs in the prostate — a small walnut-shaped gland in men that produces the seminal fluid that nourishes and transports sperm. Prostate cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in men.
- HIV/AIDS advocacy
In many countries, those most affected by HIV face criminalization and discrimination. Doors of Hope supports communities to influence the HIV policy and funding environments.
Our policy priorities are:
- Maintaining financial and political support for the HIV response
- Ensuring continued progress on HIV in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG)
- Strengthening community systems
- Advancing the human rights of key populations
- Cerebral Palsy management and advocacy.
In CP Management, we organize and offer assessments, medical camps as well as reproductive health training to women and caregivers of children with CP and autism. We offer weekly health and nutritional talks as well as occupational therapy and physiotherapy services to their children in our rehabilitation centre on a daily basis.
- Advocacy on Health related issues such as S.G.B.V
It affects women, girls, boys and men and can be physical, emotional, psychological or sexual in nature. We track such cases and help them through counselling and providing psychosocial support
