In late 2010, the Alliance Secretariat completed a series of country syntheses to reflect achievements, progress and challenges under the Alliance’s strategic framework for 2008-2010, IMPACT 2010.
Over a period of three months, more than 200 documents including restricted donor reports (e.g. Global Fund and USAID reports), evaluations and monitoring reports were reviewed in order to capture and summarise information on achievements, progress, challenges and lessons learned from 28 Alliance countries.
Our strategic directions 2008-2010
SD1 Scaled up quality community programmes delivered and access to health and HIV services improved
SD2 Increase civil society capacity to implement effective community responses
SD3 Strengthen communities’ influence in national programming and in national and international policy
The strategic directions in practice
Each of the country studies provides examples of the work of our Linking Organisations or Country Offices with regard to the first three strategic directions. For example:
To address SD1 in Myanmar the Alliance supported provision of care and support to people living with HIV (PLHIV) and HIV prevention services among men who have sex with men (MSM) and sex workers. The Alliance has also supported an innovative Private Partnership for Public Health focused on linking local community-based organisations that provide a range of services for PLHIV and private sector general practitioner doctors who practice in the community and provide antiretroviral treatment.
To address SD2 in Côte d'Ivoire Alliance Nationale contre le SIDA (ANS-CI) has provided technical support to more than 80 Community Based Organisations including the national network of PLHIV and organisations working to provide care for people co-infected with HIV and TB. ANS-CI’s own capacity has grown and has been recognised by being selected as Principal Recipient for the Global Fund.
To address SD3 in Bolivia Alliance-supported activities have resulted in changes to legislation which now prohibits discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity and requires health programmes and services to provide comprehensive healthcare to key populations and to respect their dignity and rights.
