How can the sector and the communities get involved?
Throughout the lifetime of the Programme, people will have the opportunity to get involved in campaign development and evaluation work, and through making their views heard through our website.
However, in addition there will be three structured opportunities for the sector to be involved. These are:
African community forum - this will provide a mechanism for those community organisations delivering local work with Africans to contribute to the development of HPE and to have their voice heard.
MSM community forum - this will provide a mechanism for those community organisations delivering local work with MSM to contribute to the development of HPE and to have their voice heard.
Evaluation advisory group - this will bring together a small team of experts drawn from public health, clinical and research fields to provide support and additional HIV prevention intelligence to HPE.
There will also be opportunities for faith groups, LGBT and African community groups and businesses to get involved through the Development & Engagement workstream, with all of us contributing to reducing HIV in our communities.
