Call for submission of country best practices on programmes on the role of communities in ending AIDS by 2030
Thematic Segment on “The role of communities in ending AIDS by 2030” at the 38th Meeting of the UNAIDS Programme Coordinating Board,
30 June 2016
The 37th UNAIDS Program Coordinating Board (PCB) meeting agreed that the theme for its 38th meeting be “The role of communities in ending AIDS by 2030.” The thematic day will take place on 30 June 2016.
- Scope of submissions
UNAIDS is seeking examples of country best practices on the role of communities in ending AIDS by 2030. Submissions of best practices should contain (see submission form in below annex for more details):
- Description of Programme
- Reach and impact of Programme
- Financing and management
- Lessons Learned and Recommendations
The thematic will highlight the important role that community responses play as part of national responses to HIV, as well as policy issues concerning financing, capacity and political support for community responses. Specifically, we are looking for examples of community responses in the following four areas:
- Advocacy, campaigning and participation in accountability
- Community-based service delivery (i.e. testing, prevention, care and support, treatment, legal services, task shifting, demand creation, training of health care workers etc.)
- Participatory community-based research
- Community financing (onward granting, resource mobilisation)
We are also seeking to highlight examples of key-population-led community responses (gay men and other men who have sex with men, people who inject drugs, sex workers, transgender, and people living with HIV) and HIV community responses within a humanitarian context.
It would therefore be helpful if submissions could indicate which of these topics the case study illustrates.
UNAIDS has recently published Communities Deliver, a document that features case studies from many countries on the topics above. If you would like to propose including one of those case studies in the background note please let us know. The publication is available here: http://www.unaids.org/sites/default/files/media_asset/UNAIDS_JC2725_CommunitiesDeliver_en.pdf
- Who can submit?
UNAIDS is seeking submissions from National AIDS Programmes, civil society organisations, and implementing programmes on the role of communities in ending AIDS by 2030.
Submissions are also sought from private sector entities and the intergovernmental organisations as well as UN organisations supporting such programmes.
- How will your submission be used?
The submissions will be used to inform the background note to the UNAIDS 38th PCB Thematic Segment. Some submissions may also be selected to highlight the Thematic Day on 30 June 2016. Finally, the submissions will be compiled in a document on good practices on the role of communities in ending AIDS by 2030 which will be posted on the UNAIDS Programme Coordinating Board website.

Submissions are accepted in English and French.
