Making it happen - old

Response 4: Making it happen

To achieve healthier communities; develop strong community organisations that can meet their needs; and tackle the structural inequalities that hinder the HIV response, we must make sure that as an Alliance we are strong and sustainable.

Our strategy is clear. To achieve our ambitious targets and contribute to a world without AIDS, we need to do things differently and better. This response tracks our ability to ensure the Alliance remains relevant and valued by its members, and to maintain and expand our accreditation system.

  • We continue to invest in our accreditation system, so donors and the public know that an Alliance Linking Organisation is one that is equipped to deliver quality programming and has the right management and financial systems in place.
  • Over the course of the previous strategy, the Alliance developed a strong track record around value for money, piloting approaches such as Social Return on Investment (SROI). A new value-for-money plan has been developed and progress made on achieving regular cost-savings.
  • We are delivering more technical support through our regional Hubs to ensure Alliance Linking Organisations meet our own rigorous standards.
  • We have a 'value index' to keep a check on what the independent Linking Organisations rate highly as being part of the Alliance and where we can improve. The single most important benefit identified in 2013 was learning from each other and technical support.
  • We are exploring new ways to diversify our activities and our income, as we face the challenge of HIV-related ODA (official development assistance from national governments) being withdrawn from middle-income countries, which is where the majority of people living with HIV live.
