Strengthening the Organizational Capacity of Local Partners DREAMS IC Technical Brief


Working with local, indigenous organizations has long been recognized as an effective way to increase country ownership and promote a sustained response to the HIV pandemic. Local non-governmental, faith-, and community-based organizations (CBOs), and other civil society groups have been at the center of this response, often leading the way in reaching individuals and communities with sustainable strategies to mitigate and prevent HIV. Further, many of these organizations, such as networks of people living with HIV, are best able to understand, represent, and meet the needs of the populations they represent. In this context, the DREAMS Innovation Challenge offers important lessons for building the organizational and technical capacity of local and other underutilized partners to contribute to epidemic control in sub-Saharan Africa.
