GNP+ Global Network of People Living with HIV
UK supports global drive to hold countries accountable to HIV/AIDS Universal Access
News - Press releases
Tuesday, 07 October 2008
The Global Network of People living with HIV (GNP+) and the World AIDS Campaign are proud to announce the start of their joint programme Keeping the Promise of HIV/AIDS Universal Access.

The UK Department of International Development (DfID) will support GNP+ and World AIDS Campaign through its Governance and Transparency Fund (GTF) for 5 years for a total of GBP 4,099,669 (EUR 5,176,755; USD 7,558,739).

The programme is the result of a long standing partnership between GNP+ and the World AIDS Campaign. Together the coalition has many years of experience in advocating, campaigning, skills building, mobilizing and working with networks. Most joint campaigning and advocacy has been directed at improving the governance of institutions and governments, holding them accountable with the aim to increase their responsiveness to the HIV pandemic.

“From the perspective of people living with HIV (PLHIV), this GTF-funded programme is designed to facilitate the collection of evidence in communities of human rights abuses, stigma and discrimination and the degree to which the greater involvement of people living with HIV (GIPA) has been implemented,” stated Kevin Moody, International Coordinator / CEO of GNP+. “This evidence will become the basis for campaigning, advocacy and policy development at country, regional and international level."

South Africa: TAC welcomes appointment of new Health Minister
News - Latest news
Thursday, 02 October 2008

The Treatment Action Campaign (TAC) welcomes the appointments of Ms Barbara Hogan as the Minister of Health and Dr Molefi Sefularo as the Deputy Minister of Health. We congratulate President Motlanthe for making these excellent appointments.

We are confident that Hogan has the ability to improve the South African health system. She has been one of the few Members of Parliament to speak out against AIDS denialism and to offer support to the TAC, even during the worst period of AIDS denialism by former President Thabo Mbeki and former Health Minister Manto Tshabalala-Msimang. 0n 14 February 2003, she received the TAC memorandum to President Mbeki for a treatment plan. She was removed as Finance Portfolio Chairperson by Mbeki in part for her stand on HIV/AIDS.  She has a reputation for being hard-working, competent and principled.

Hogan has a long record of struggle for human rights. Twenty-seven years ago, she was detained and tortured by the apartheid security Police. She was tried for treason as an ANC member and spent eight years in prison.

Dr Sefularo, during his tenure as MEC for Health of North West Province, supported ARV rollout and the implementation of the Prevention of Mother to Child Transmission (PMTCT) in the province.

NGO Code of Good Practice Self Assessment tools
News - Latest news
Monday, 22 September 2008

The NGO Code of Good Practice was developed by NGOs, for NGOs, to help guide our work by providing a framework to which we can commit and be held accountable. Drawing on 20 years of knowledge and experience, the Code sets out key principles, practice and evidence base required for successful responses to HIV.

We are honoured to introduce the new Code Self-Assessment Tools! A series of self-assessment checklists that have been developed to help you to measure where your programmes stand in line with Code principles. In completing each module, you should be able to identify areas in your programmes that are already at a good practice level, as well as areas that can be developed and strengthened to meet the Code's principles.

Put the Code's principles into practice -- Download the checklists from the GNP+ library and assess how your NGO's programmes measure up to good practice principles. There are more checklists and translations in development so check back regularly!
