NAZ is a BAME-led sexual health agency working to address sexual health inequalities in BAME communities. They work across London to provide culturally specific interventions to BAME communities disproportionately impacted by poor sexual, reproductive and HIV outcomes. They also have a national reach through our events and programmes.
NAZ believe the inequality in BAME sexual health must be scrutinised under a wider lens: factors such as housing, long term health conditions, education, employment, representation and leadership contribute to local as well as national health outcomes. Race is a significant factor in sexual health inequalities and having those most impacted driving the thinking, strategy, research and leadership as well as the operations, is key to achieving a step-change in sexual health outcomes long-term, for minority communities.
