Sharing our knowlegde

Knowledge sharing is fundamental to the Alliance’s mission and the way we work.  It is the sum of the Alliance’s combined voices and experiences which make the greatest contribution to building healthy communities that are less vulnerable to HIV.


Evaluations play an important role in enabling the Alliance to improve the quality of its programming, and lessons learned are shared across programmes and regions. We are committed to learning from our evaluations and research.  Results, whether positive or negative, are communicated widely and learning built systematically into planning and implementation.  

You can read some of our most recent evaluations by clicking the links in the publications box on the right.

These include:

  • Keeping HIV positive mothers healthy: A Summary of results from the I Alliance’s Maternal, Newborn and Child Health (MNCH) programme, funded by UK aid from the Department for International Development (DFID) which ran from October 2010 – September 2011.
  • Evaluation: The Eastern Caribbean Community Action Project (EC-CAP): this three year USAID project worked with people living with HIV, sex workers, gay men and men who have sex with men and  had a peer-led approach, using ‘community animators’ to reach out to people at higher risk of HIV.

A learning Alliance

Creating a learning Alliance is one of our key strategic responses. You can read more about our achievements and performance on knowledge sharing on our impact site.

Our Horizontal Learning Exchange scheme and communities of practice allow Alliance members to learn directly from each other.  We support Alliance members to document and share experiences and lessons learned.  You can read more about 2012’s exchanges here.

Through online portals, such as PortalSIDA and Setu, information and learning is shared across the Alliance partnership, and with the wider HIV/AIDS community.

We also build the capacity of Alliance members, so they can incorporate knowledge sharing and learning practices into their organisations, projects and everyday work.
