PHAMESA 2014 Annual Report
THE PARTNERSHIP ON HEALTH AND MOBILITY IN EAST AND SOUTHERN AFRICA
(PHAMESA) is a regional, comprehensive initiative that aims to assist governments and other migration and development stakeholders mitigate the health risks and vulnerabilities associated with the ever-increasing movement of vulnerable populations within and between East and Southern Africa. In January 2014, the programme entered its second phase (PHAMESA II), which builds on 10 years of experience and lessons learned from the first phase (2010-2013) and the preceding Partnership on HIV and mobility in Southern Africa (PHAMSA, 2004 – 2010). The programme is supported with funds from the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida), the Government of the Netherlands, PEPFAR/USAID, and the Southern African Development Community (SADC). Also, as a member of UN Joint Teams, PHAMESA receives support from the Joint UN Programme of support of AIDS in Uganda and from the Joint UN Programme on Gender Based Violence in Zambia.
