We are delighted to welcome four organisations to the Alliance, all of whom have become accredited Linking Organisations.

Mozambique: MONASO

MONASO (the Mozambique National AIDS Services Organisation) is a network of AIDS services organisations with 18 years experience working with civil society organisations to combat HIV/AIDS.

In 2011 MONASO intends to strengthen their experience, knowledge and strategies through the Alliance family as well as to share their experience with the other Linking Organisations.

Zimbabwe: ZAN

ZAN’s accreditation  is “a graduation to a higher level of excellence”, says ZAN’s National Director Lindiwe Chaze-Jangira. “The Alliance will strengthen our role in advocacy at all levels, while their experience in developing targeted tools and drawing lessons learnt will help ZAN members in achieving the mission and vision of the new strategy”.
