SHAKA Services is a charitable specialist sexual health organisation based in South London. SHAKA Services provides high quality, culturally appropriate care and support services and free advice on a range of issues including sexual health, HIV treatment, emotional support, welfare rights, social care, housing and immigration. We work mainly with African/Caribbean and Asian people living with or affected by HIV/AIDS who live in the Greater London area. Our primary aim is to promote better sexual health awareness and safer sex in order to tackle both HIV/AIDS prevention and related sexual health issues (i.e. sexually transmitted infections, unplanned pregnancies and abortions).
SHAKA Services also provides training and consultancy to agencies across the country to help develop initiatives targeted at black populations in relation to HIV/AIDS/sexual health. We aim to influence public policy by conducting original research into issues related to HIV/AIDS/sexual health and black and minority ethnic communities.
