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.


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

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
