Applications are open to our upcoming training focused on Community-Led Monitoring (CLM) of the Dublin Declaration on HIV/AIDS. The call is open for community representatives (people living with HIV (PLHIV) and other key populations) working at AAE Member organisations the EU Member States, particularly where CLM is not meaningfully included or entirely absent in national HIV/AIDS response monitoring.
This training aims to build and increase capacities of community representatives (PLHIV) and other key populations and other communities affected by HIV and AIDS working at civil society organisations, to advocate for their inclusion in monitoring activities and meaningfully participate in their national CLM. Here you can read the frequently asked questions about CLM.
This training is a part of the AIDS Action Europe Community-Led Monitoring (CLM) project. Following the training, the participant’s organisation will receive a mini-grant of 1500€ and be expected under the lead of the trained participant to plan and implement a small-scale CLM advocacy project at the national level until the end of 2023, utilising the skills and knowledge acquired during the training.
