To start, choose a topic from the dropdown menus below to generate a list of those resources — then use the other filters to narrow your results. After you have generated a list of resources, you may select specific resources by clicking on the headline/title of that reource. Indiviudual resource pages offer you the option to browse similar resources by searching key population, language, theme, and keyword tags. We welcome your contributions!
Although HIV prevalence in Ghana has experienced a slow decline in the past decade, there remains a significant epidemic among men who have sex with men (MSM) and female sex workers (FSWs) in particular. HIV programming efforts of local nongovernmental organizations (NGO) required capacity building and organizational development to strengthen their ability to effectively implement, monitor, and evaluate HIV programs for key populations and people living with HIV (PLHIV). In response, FHI 360 Ghana was awarded Strengthening HIV/AIDS Response Partnership and Evidenced-based Results (SHARPER) in 2010 by USAID to reduce HIV transmission among MSM, FSWs, PLHIV and the sex partners of these groups.
This report provides examples of the capacity-strengthening activities employed by the mentors and their impact on five grantee partner organizations, one from each of the regions in which the GMT Initiative provides support: Africa, the Asia-Pacific, the Caribbean, Latin America, and Eastern Europe and Central Asia. It also outlines variables that grassroots GMT organizations can use to measure their own organizational growth.
This tool, commonly abbreviated as 'SWIT,' is the product of collaboration among sex workers, service providers, researchers, government officials, and NGOs from around the world. Its development was guided by WHO, UNFPA, UNAIDS, NSWP, the World Bank, and development partners from the US, including the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The purpose of this tool is to describe approaches and principles to building programmes. The summary (policy brief) is also available.
