D'Adamo, Margaret; Kols, Adrienne, 2005. A Tool for Sharing Internal Best Pracices. USAID Info Project
In order to strengthen the member organisations' use of the Best Practice approach both as a tool and as a process, the two networks entered into a joint venture in 2003. One of the main components was the commissioning of a study to produce an overview of the relevance of Best Practices in international development work, as well as a discussion of how the concept of Best Practices can be meaningfully applied to practical program interventions of Danish NGOs and their South partners in their work on HIV/AIDS and children and youth.

Identifying practices around the world that work in responding to the AIDS pidemic, and examining how and why they work, is one of the UNAIDS Secretariat's main tasks. UNAIDS and its cosponsors promote the sharing of these practices, including through such means as documentation and widespread distribution of the lessons learned.
The concept of Best Practice is not reserved for "ultimate truths" or "gold tandards." For UNAIDS, Best Practice means accumulating and applying nowledge about what is working and not working in different situations and contexts. In other words, it is both the lessons learned and the continuing process of learning, feedback, reflection, and analysis (what works, how and why, and so forth).
UK Consortium on on AIDS and International Development Working Group on Orphans and Vulnerable Children and DFID, Symposium on Sharing Best Practices in Orphans and Vulnerable Children Programming Workshop Report, , November 2004.
The aim of this symposium was to share experiences and programme approaches among practitioners working with orphans and children made vulnerable by HIV and AIDS and their carers. There were presentations to highlight lessons learnt and best practice related to the five approaches identified in 'The Framework for the Protection of Orphans and Vulnerable Children Living in a World with HIV and AIDS.' The presentations facilitated discussion and assisted with identifying approaches, which
can be scaled up and replicated.
