Introduction

COPAAP, the Community Partnership Against AIDS Program, was founded in 2003 by a group of physicians, community development experts and anthropologists in order to bridge culture, society, and medicine in the fight against the HIV & AIDS pandemic at a local rural level in Africa. We are an apolitical, non-religious, non-profit NGO open to all people or organizations that share in our objectives and are committed to the fight against HIV & AIDS in Africa.

Objective

COPAAP’s mission is to empower rural African communities in their fight against the HIV & AIDS pandemic by providing professional, technical and material assistance in the elaboration and implementation of sustainable comprehensive HIV & AIDS control projects. These projects include sensitization, free mass screenings, capacity building, care and treatment to people living with or affected by HIV & AIDS.

Where We Work

Since 2003, COPAAP has worked in the Northwest Province of the Republic of Cameroon and specifically in the rural villages surrounding Bamenda. In the future COPAAP hopes to extend to other areas of Cameroon and other sub-Saharan African countries.
