Advocacy in action: A toolkit to support NGOs and CBOs
01 June 2002
Advocacy – speaking up on behalf of others who, for whatever reason, do not have a voice – is an effective way of influencing people in power.
It can range from a child defending her orphaned cousin against stigma or actors living with HIV/AIDS performing a drama about their rights.
This toolkit, produced jointly by the Alliance and the International Council of AIDS Service Organizations (ICASO), shows NGOs and CBOs how they can use advocacy to influence people in power, to create an environment that protects the rights, health and welfare of everyone, whether HIV positive or negative. It sets out to build practical skills, provide a training resource and continue learning.
