Community Training

Rainbow Bhutan in collaboration with National HIV/STIs Control Programme under Ministry of Health is conducted a two day training on Sex, Sexuality & Gender in Relation to HIV & AIDS for key affected populations in Bhutan (6th to 7th May, 2019).

Access to Health Services

Due to limited knowledge on specific health issues, it is always a challenge for the community to get the right services. Rainbow Bhutan identifies and collaborates with allies in the health sector to ensure that the community is taken care of when they need the support. The support range from referrals to ensuring that the community receives the support that they require. Please visit the Contact page to reach out.
