This report assesses seven capacities of organisations of people living with HIV and other HIV network organisations to see what makes a well-functioning network. These capacities are: involvement and accountability; partnership alliances; leadership; knowledge and skills; internal communication; impact, outputs and external communication; and management and finance. The report looks at four network organisations in Eastern and Southern Africa, with secondary research drawn from networks in Bangladesh, Nepal and India. The findings and recommendations cannot be applied universally to capacity strengthening in all network organisations, but need to be adapted to the context of each particular group

Workshop manual designed to assist civil society groups working in HIV/AIDS to make the most of the UNGASS Declaration of Commitment on HIV/AIDS made in June 2001. It aims to generate an NGO/CBO national advocacy platform based on the UNGASS declaration and its indicators, and to facilitate the development of an action plan for the NGO/CBO sector based on UNGASS priorities. The workshop structure reflects the need to understand how UNGASS can be relevant to current activities; the need to stay within the limitations of current resources and activities and avoid generating a completely new set of project activities; and the need to work out how UNGASS can add value to what is already happening

This manual describes one of the tools used in "memory work", an approach to helping families and communities cope with HIV and AIDS. Through a series of art exercises and storytelling, children are encouraged to identify their heroes or role models. This process should help children affected by HIV/AIDS to cope with emotions (sadness, fear, anger), and to develop resilience and a positive approach to life. Through the process of developing a book, children are also encouraged to see themselves as heroes, to rely on their strengths and maximise their potential to overcome the problems they might encounter
