AVSI grants medical, psychosocial and educational treatment and support to the families involved, with activities to increase the income. At the core of this initiative, the technical support that AVSI gives to two Congolese associations: Tayuwana and the Club of Youth for Sexual and Sanitary Education (Club des Jeunes pour l’Education Sexuelle et à la Santé – CJESS).
