Subject: ICASA youth programme and partner organisations
I would like to inquire if any of you is going to/has applied for the ICASA
youth programme, Dec 1-3. Please let me know!
Another question, which I already posted to some of you:
The CrowdOutAIDS project will use online tools to engage young people in the
UNAIDS strategy development, but it also has an offline component for young
people without internet access, and young key affected populations.
UNAIDS is therefore looking for partnerships with local organisations that
- can support offline consultations (by providing a space, organizing,
- can promote the strategy in upcoming meetings or events
- can provide a computer with internet access for the community so that they
can engage online
To be a partner for this project, these organisations need to have:
- English skills to report back to UNAIDS
- internet access
- strong outreach to the community of young people
Do you know any strong organisations that you could recommend in the
countries below? Regional or global organisations who could serve this role
through local partners would also be very welcome, expecialy taking in mind
Ofcourse we will also reach out through our country offices to use already
established partnerships. I know you will raise the issue of
incentive/funding for partners. I'm currently trying to figure out the
possibilities in terms of that. However, these partnerships are not meant to
be a large scale project, more on the scale of spending some time during
already planned meetings with the community. When we have further worked out
the approach, I will ofcourse discuss this with you.
17 focus countries for the New Generation Leadership Strategy
10. Dem. Rep. Congo
13. South Africa
15. Russian Federation
Taking the 31 UNAIDS focus countries as the basis, this list includes the
top 15 based on the highest number of young people living with HIV in the
age group 15-24.
The list has been supplemented with the BRIC countries not falling under the
top 15, Brazil and China.
Thank you so much. It would be great if you could get back to me on Sunday
latest, so we can still incorporate your input for the launch.
