Celebrating Sexual Health For Everyone
Welcome to the nOSCARS (NAZ OSCARS) the annual black tie celebration to highlight the programmes and volunteers making a difference in Minority Communities. The nOSCARS challenges HIV & homophobic stigma. The nOSCARS provides an entertaining evening of music, comedy, and statistics. Last year 52% of people of African heritage were diagnosed late with HIV.1 Late diagnosis leaves an individual ten times more likely to die within a year. It is important to keep this and other sexual health statistics as the real headlines for this event. These awards are designed to encourage change makers to continue the hard work and fight for sexual health for everyone.

Community Partner of the Year
The Community Partner of the Year award recognises the contributions of partner agencies that enable third sector organisations support their key populations. Sexual health agencies rely heavily on support from immigration, housing, welfare and asylum services to deliver their projects. It would be almost impossible to provide a holistic service to clients without the support of these key partners.

South Asian Communities Award
There are 6 separate MSM programmes at NAZ supporting Portuguese, South Asian, African, Spanish, Caribbean and Black African men. Up to 21% of HIV infections involving heterosexual African men are misclassified and are actually the result of sex with other men (Hue S et al 2014).
All of the NAZ programmes for MSM work towards a personal knowledge of the individual and how to love with the least harm. This award recognises the dedication of MSM who embody the NAZ vision, of Sexual Health for Everyone.
NAZ has been working in partnership with other sexual health agencies to train over 100 Faith Leaders, including Imans and Pastors as part of the Testing Faith programme. Across London, Luton, Herts and Milton Keynes Faith Leaders have inspired better sexual health through HIV Testing programmes and sexual health seminars.
This award recognises the Faith Leader who has impacted congregation, community and sexual health agencies with their commitment to sexual health for everyone.

Kiss is the South Asian Lesbian and Bisexual women peer support group at NAZ. The focus has been to create a safe space to express their culture and their sexual orientation.
The 1000women project was created to hear from BAME HIV+, Lesbian and Bisexual and Mental Health survivors who currently experience some of the worse health outcomes in the country. In 2013, BAME women made up 82% of all women accessing HIV care BAME women have 2.7-3.2 times higher suicide rates compared to their White British Counterparts and 41% of BAME lesbian and bisexual women have considered taking their own life.
This award recognises the achievements of Women who despite having poor health outcomes have risen to their game and continue to inspire other women to do the same.
Well Being Award
In general, BAME community groups living in the UK are more likely to be diagnosed with mental health problems, more likely to be diagnosed and admitted to hospital and more likely to disengage from mainstream mental health services.
The NAZ counselling service offer emotional support to many individuals who have felt rejected, isolated from their communities. The service is supported by 12 volunteers. This award celebrates the achievements of the counselling team who work on to support clients enjoy better mental and sexual health

Latin Empowerment Award
The Latin American community of London is one of the most vibrant fastest growing communities. However, research from the No Longer Invisible report suggests that the community has very limited access to health services: 1 in 5 Latin Americans are not registered with a GP, and 4 out of 10 have never been to a dentist in the UK.
Recent epidemiological data from PHE suggests that 1 in 8 men-who-have-sex-with-men (MSM) diagnosed with HIV in London during 2011 were born in Latin America. Brazilian MSM had the second highest share of HIV diagnoses between 2007 and 2011. This award recognizes champions within the community working to ensure that there is sexual health for all Latin Americans across the capital.
