KFHA work recognised

Monday, July 24, 2017

International News

A new report has recognised the work of the Kiribati Family Health Association, highlighting its popularity among local i-Kiribati in South Tarawa.

The report, which examined STI and HIV risk among vulnerable populations in Kiribati, described the Kiribati Family Health Association (KFHA) as “a stable NGO with...a reputation of being an approachable and non-judgemental service among participants in the research.”

The research, Pacific multi-country mapping and behavioural study: HIV and STI risk vulnerability among key populations, was undertaken by the United Nations Development Programme, the United Nations Children’s Fund, and the University of New South Wales.

It recognised KFHA’s reputation amongst clients, and female sex workers in particular, as the preferred clinic of choice for accessing sexual health services.

“The women who had tested all preferred to go to the KFHA clinic because they knew the health workers there and this made them feel more comfortable. KFHA staff were perceived as non-judgemental and the women trusted the staff to keep their information confidential.”

The report also highlighted KFHA’s work advocating for sexual and reproductive rights, and its success in engaging with church leaders over what can sometimes be contentious issues.

As KFHA’s partner organisation, Family Planning is very pleased with the findings, as they confirm the great work KFHA is doing in Kiribati.

Family Planning has clinics located throughout New Zealand. Use the clinic finder to find your nearest clinic.
