Love Garden Board Game

Saath-Saath Project (SSP), (2011-2016) funded by United States Agency for International Development (USAID) provided HIV prevention, care, support and treatment services along with family planning (FP) services, referral and gender-based violence (GBV) prevention and mitigation services through its outreach activities and expanded integrated health services (EIHS) sites. The project worked in partnership with Government of Nepal (GoN), Ministry of Health through National Centre for AIDS and STD Control, Family Health Division, Logistic Management Division, National Health Training Centre, and National Health Education Information and Communication Centre.

SSP’s goal was to reduce the transmission and impact of HIV and AIDS and improve reproductive health among selected key affected populations (KAPs).

The Love Garden (“Maya Ko Bagaicha”) Board Game was developed to encourage initiate discussion among FSWs and clients of FSWs who think that their regular partner is faithful and therefore do not see any risk in having sex without a condom. This game also is a discussion-starter about how HIV and STI can be transmitted by having multiple partners.
