WE ARE WORKING ON WORLDWIDE CHARITY SINCE 2003
Lhak-Sam (BNP+) is the first network of HIV positive people in Bhutan which was formed in September 2009 by a group of positive people in Thimphu. Lhaksam was registered as a civil society organization (CSO) on 26th November 2010 with the main aim to provide and promote leadership, education and capacity building to people living with HIV (PLHIV) and their families, establish linkages with regional and international networks of PLHIV.
Encouraged by the Ministry of Health, the group expanded to other districts and set its mission to create and promote a strong support system based on solidarity, social networking and people’s participation for addressing and taking collective action towards effective responses to HIV/AIDS and its impact. It currently has 107 members (51 females and 45 males) across the country and an executive committee (comprising of 8 members) has been formed that makes all major decisions for the group. The executive director (male) and the General Secretary (female) have been elected from among the member.
Lhak-Sam aims to be a premier organization in Bhutan committed to providing and promoting leadership, education and capacity building to all PLHIV and their families, empowering them to improve their quality of life, by reducing stigma and discrimination and through access to appropriate prevention, care and support services.Read More
