ADEYI, Olusoji
et al
March 2001

Expand view

This toolkit adds to the knowledge base to support analysts and decision-makers in their work to mainstream HIV/AIDS as a major item on countries' development agenda, and mobilize the resources needed to expand promising interventions and approaches in the fight against the epidemic. The toolkit offers a unifying framework for analysing HIV/AIDS in the context of PRSPs, as well as examples of how the issue has been treated in the first generation of PRSPs, interim PRSPs and debt relief agreements. It gives country officials and their partners highly relevant information that they can use in developing inputs for similar documents in their own countries. [adapted from Foreword]

This manual has been written for people working in groups.

It has developed from experiences of people living with HIV who have been working together in groups around the world. It is practical in focus and written in accessible language, with checklists, examples and tips throughout. Part 1 looks at why we set up groups and the benefits of group working. Part 2 looks at the practicalities of setting up groups, organising meetings and keeping the group going. Part 3 looks at some skills and activities for developing and maintaining positive group dynamics. Part 4 explains how to develop a project step-by-step, from planning to evaluation. Part 5 offers advice on finding sources of funding, Part 6 deals with disclosure issues, and Part 7 looks at advocacy and campaigning at all levels
