NFI at A Glance

We are NFI

Naz Foundation International (NFI) is an international MSM development agency that has been providing technical, institutional and financial assistance to MSM networks, groups, collectives and organisations in South Asia since 1996, along with some countries in South-East Asia . Along with NFI seeking to empower these groups and organisations so that they may develop and deliver their own sexual health and HIV prevention, support and care services, we also strongly advocate with donors, governments and non-government institutions for the urgent need to increase investment and rapid scaling up of service coverage, along with working with a number of institutions on policy development and support for research into male-male sexualities, behaviours and HIV epidemiology.


Whilst NFI is registered in the UK as a not-for-profit, non-governmental organisation and has a small governance, policy and management office and it has established a regional programme office in Lucknow, India.
