CBO capacity analysis toolkit

A toolkit for assessing and building capacities for high quality responses to HIV.

This capacity analysis toolkit was developed to enable community based organisations to analyse levels of capacity in different organisational and technical areas.

It is based on a previous toolkit developed under the Communities Responding to the HIV/AIDS Epidemic (CORE) Initiative, where the Alliance was the consortium partner providing expertise in organisational capacity building for HIV programming.

This toolkit can be used:

  • with community organisations to identify capacity-building needs
  • plan any technical support needed by the organisation
  • and monitor and evaluate the impact of capacity-building support.

This toolkit is based on a design developed by Geoff Foster, of Family AIDS Caring Trust in Zimbabwe and was further developed and piloted for this version with contributions from ANCS (Alliance Nationale Contre le SIDA) in Senegal, International HIV/AIDS Alliance in the Caribbean, CARE Rwanda, CARE Uganda, Thai National AIDS Foundation, CORE Initiative and the Alliance secretariat.

This article was written as the International HIV/AIDS Alliance, before we changed our name to Frontline AIDS.
