Train People Living with HIV to SpeakUp for Change



Transatlantic Partners Against AIDS will develop a training course for people living with HIV/AIDS in Russia to educate them in HIV/AIDS Policy Advocacy and Government Relations.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Recent amendments to the NGO legislation in Russia promise increased state funding to the local NGOs involved in HIV-related program development and implementation. These changes increasingly call for local NGO capacity building to empower them with knowledge and skills to actively engage in HIV/AIDS policy advocacy. Experience around the world proves that people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWH) are best positioned to assume the leading role in HIV/AIDS policy advocacy.

How will this project solve this problem?

1) Evaluate advocacy expertise and the needs of the HIV positive in Russian regions 2) Develop and implement the course in collaboration with governmental and non-governmental stakeholders 3) Train leaders to teach the course to create sustainability

Potential Long Term Impact

The proposed training course will contribute to the institutional capacity building of organizations of PLWH and provide the long-awaited opportunity for the local networks of PLWH to gain skills and expertise for successful HIV/AIDS policy advocacy
