Pan African and Caribbean Sexual Health (PACSH) Project PDF Print E-mail

ECCUK has been providing information on HIV/AIDS and sexual health for the past 14 years. In this time we have built on our experience and expertise in the field.


The services of ECCUK have been expanded to Pan African and Caribbean communities since 2005 and have covered the wider issues of Primary and Secondary HIV prevention.  The PACSH project has been in operation since then and successfully supported well over 48 different nationalities with regard to providing direct support to HIV positive people and also provide primary prevention programme to our service users.

The PACSH Project is one of the main programmes of ECCUK that is also the main provider of community sexual health promotion services for African and Caribbean people living in Enfield and Haringey. ECCUK is also a member of different organisations such as African HIV Policy Network (AHPN) since its beginning and an implementing partner of National African HIV Prevention programme National African HIV Prevention (NAHIP) programme in North Central London - Camden, Islington, Enfield, Haringey, and Barnet.

In parallel with other services of ECCUK, PACSH project provides information, advice and guidance on sexual health in general and has a number of programmes within it.  They are the Primary and Secondary HIV prevention programmes

Definition:

Primary HIV Prevention is defined as ‘activities focused on preventing uninfected people from becoming infected.  Secondary HIV Prevention is aimed at enabling people living with HIV to stay well and to prevent the onward transmission of HIV.  Tertiary HIV Prevention aims to minimise the effects of ill health experienced by someone who has symptomatic HIV.
