Aids Alliance

DFID has published a compilation of case studies from twelve agencies, including the Alliance, working in the Latin American Partnership Programme Arrangement which illustrate how active citizens can achieve accountable governments in the region.

The shared experience of the agencies is that active citizens are achieving real impact and results in Latin America with empowered community groups bringing tangible improvements to the living conditions and a reduction in poverty and inequality.

Throughout Latin America a diverse range of interest groups - community associations, neighbourhood committees, voluntary agencies, churches and faith groups - form a vibrant and innovative civil society.

These groups are the driving force behind progress towards greater transparency, decentralisation of decision-making and consolidation of democracy. 

This portfolio of case studies demonstrates the role of civil society in holding public authorities to account and expanding opportunities for public engagement.

The Alliance’s case study looks at the advocacy achievements that have been made by Atlacatl, our Linking Organisation in El Salvador.
