Joining the Alliance
The Alliance partnership is a valuable resource for everyone who works with and for NGOs and CBOs and is involved in community and health system strengthening worldwide.
Alliance linking organisations are entitled to a wide range of benefits, all designed to keep them up to date with the latest programming, policy and fundraising news.
Not only do they benefit from the best practice and shared expertise of Alliance linking organisations worldwide, but they also have a chance to network with likeminded professionals who all share one aim – to create a world in which people do not die of AIDS.
For more information on joining the Alliance, check the directory to find out if there is already a linking organisation based in your country, or contact the Global Alliance Services Team at the International Secretariat.

Access to professional training, technical support and information
The Alliance has established seven Regional Technical Support Hubs to provide a model of South-to-South technical assistance that focuses on community system strengthening. The Hubs draw on Alliance know-how and practice standards to provide training, technical support and information to Alliance linking organisations, as well as other NGOs and CBOs in their regions.
Access to Alliance know-how
Regular briefings on key HIV and TB programming, and international and regional policy developments. Including weekly and monthly email services (The Loop) covering Alliance news, comprehensive summaries of key programming and research findings on a wide range of topics, and free access to the range of Alliance technical publications.
Enhanced organisational performance
Alliance linking organisations sign up to a common Charter and Linking Agreement, with an associated quality assurance; accreditation system designed to guarantee quality in service delivery. To achieve accreditation, Alliance partners must meet high institutional and programmatic standards, as assessed by peer review.
Networking and development
Every year, Alliance linking organisations meet at ‘Blue Sky Weeks’ to discuss critical issues for the global response to HIV and TB. Events take place in Asia and Eastern Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean, and in Africa. In addition, partners are supported to attend pre-conference meetings at major regional and international conferences, as well as participate in regional and global policy events. These events are a great opportunity to keep up to date and network with other Alliance partners.
Solidarity and financial support
Access to funding opportunities through coordinated partnership working and proposal development. Linking organisations also have access to legal and technical support on implementing programmes and contracts on behalf of national governments and other donor agencies.
