About the Poro Sapot Project
Save the Children began its Papua New Guinea HIV and AIDS Program in February 2003 with Poro Sapot Project (PSP). PSP is an intervention in response to HIV epidemic in PNG, focusing on women and men particularly at risk for sexually-transmitted infections, especially HIV: female, male and transgender sex workers, men who have sex with other men, and the sexual partners of these groups. Secondarily PSP works with members of the Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary to help them better understand the life conditions faced by these at-risk women, transgenders and men so as to better protect their human rights.
In addition the Project works with Local Level Government and other community leaders; people who act as gatekeepers to sexual networks; and key government bodies including the Ministry for Community Development, the National Department of Health and the National AIDS Council.
