History

Nazir is our past and present

The late HIV and gay rights activist, Shivananda Khan, established NAZ in his memory.  Shivananda understood that support for people like Nazir would need to:

– be culturally specific
– be driven from within the community
– use an integrated approach with knowledge of policy, race, culture,  religion and sexuality.

Unfortunately, the issues that Nazir experienced still remain live today and so NAZ offers the most relevant response to this dilemma. NAZ exists in order to provide a range of sexual health services and programmes, specifically for men and women from Black Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities.
