Naz India Goal
The Naz Foundation India Trust has been working on HIV/AIDS, sexual health, and adolescent girl empowerment since 1994. Naz promotes awareness of HIV prevention and provides care and support to those afflicted with utmost sensitivity and confidentiality. Having worked with over 7000 girls through their netball outreach program—Goal—as well as thousands of people living with HIV and AIDS, Naz has realized that young women are India’s most vulnerable group. Rather than the traditional approach, Naz perceives prevention through a different lens – one that empowers girls to make informed decisions and develop the necessary communication skills and self-confidence to negotiate for themselves.
