Nourishing the GIPA tree in MENA
Implementing a capacity building project in the MENA region to strengthen the involvement, care and support of people living with HIV.
This case study, by AMEL, GS++ and Vivre Positif, documents the Alliance experience of implementing a capacity building project in the Middle East and North African (MENA) region to strengthen the involvement, care and support of people living with HIV.
This was the first time that nascent organisations or support groups of people living with HIV in Algeria, Lebanon and Tunisia had received regular technical and financial support from an international NGO to lead targeted HIV care and support projects, implemented by and for people living with HIV.
The case study is intended for funders, as well as public sector policy- and decision-makers and programme managers from the civil society sector, committed to preventing HIV and improving the lives of people living with HIV in the MENA region.
