HI has been present in Cape Verde since 2006. Since the beginning of our intervention, 4 projects in the fields of physical rehabilitation and capacity building of organizations of persons with disabilities have been implemented in the country.
Since 2017 HI has been developing projects in the field of health and prevention, including the inclusion of disabled and vulnerable people in the fight against HIV. As part of the three-year regional HIV-Handicap project, HI is improving access to data on the vulnerability of people with disabilities to HIV infection. The objective is to increase the technical and organizational capacity of civil society organizations to promote the inclusion of people with disabilities in the fight against HIV/AIDS at the national level.
