THE MARPS NETWORK SECRETARIAT
The MARPs Network Secretariat, established in 2011, by design has a lean team of MARPs-competent staff although occasionally outsources seasoned teams. The secretariat has since established its niche and competitive advantage in health (particularly HIV and AIDS) targeting MARPs in Uganda. The organization enjoys easy access and influence to the wide spectrum of MARPs; it is a safe space for MARPs (especially KAPs) to consort and has enviable experience and expertise in MARPs programming.
At present, the MARPs Network secretariat is also the MARPs secretariat for Global fund Uganda country coordinating mechanism (UCCM) activities, the home of Gender and Sexual Diversity (GSD) Trainings in Uganda, a sub-recipient (SR) of Global fund resources targeting MARPs, etc.
