Movement of Men Against Aids in Kenya (MMAAK) 1 December 2006
Twenty five years after HIV was first identified in Kenya, the virus is thriving.

Despite the ravages of HIV, the population on the shores of Lake Victoria continues to grow because of high birth rates and the migration of farmers turning to fishing as drought destroys their crops.

Pressure on the lake's resources is reaching crisis point. And poverty and hunger is contributing to the spread of the virus as market women are increasingly resorting to offering sex, as well as money, to fishermen for their catch. It’s a practice known as jaboya.

As Angela Robson has been finding out, one of the most vocal organisations in Kenya now speaking out about the exploitation of women is a network of men.
