Two new India Case Studies are now available on the AIDSTAR-One website.
1) Community-Based Initiatives for HIV Program Management among Most-at-Risk Populations (http://j.mp/10JL3AH)
Both NGO and community-based organization (CBO) approaches can benefit HIV program management. This case study explores the significant role of community-based initiatives and the process of collaborating with community-based organizations (CBOs) to address HIV within communities of MARPs. The study focuses on two CBOs—Sarathi, located in the city of Nagpur, and Prerana Samajik Sanstha (Inspire Community Organization, or PSS), an organization comprised of and for female sex workers (FSWs) in Aurangabad.
2) Strengthening HIV/AIDS Programs in Two Indian States (http://j.mp/10JL7jM)
The Samastha Project aimed to provide a comprehensive program of networked HIV prevention, treatment, care and support services for most-at-risk populations in Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh, India. In addition to creating linkages across different types of HIV services, a key component of the Samastha project was capacity building and systems strengthening. This case study focuses on the development of Samastha's technical assistance strategy and approaches.
