Supporting Zambia’s Advocacy Campaign for People Living with HIV and AIDS
Officially launched on 29th May, 2009 and fully operational since then, the central hub is situated at SAfAIDS premises in Lusaka. Establishment of the advocacy hub was inspired by little/lack of coordination of HIV and AIDS advocacy efforts around the country. As part of a key component of the Community Preparedness Project, which SAfAIDS Zambia is implementing, pools of activists and advocates have been trained in Advocacy Skills to implement successful campaigns, but despite this achievement in building the capacity of these advocates, a wide gap still exists for implementation of a well coordinated campaign. This has led to, among other things, little recognition of advocacy efforts, achievements and low participation of stakeholders in advocacy activities.
