Speaking out and advocating for and with children and adolescents affected by HIV is essential at country, regional and global levels. These advocacy messages are now available in English, French, Portuguese and Swahili and are intended to support anyone to advocate at any level to help us all to speak coherently and with one strong voice. They have been developed by the Coalition for Children Affected by AIDS - an independent group of thought leaders, including donors, UN, non-governmental, and academic communities, including communities and people living with HIV.
If you are interested in joining the Coalition, membership is open to donors, policymakers, implementers, activists, and researchers committed to children and adolescents affected by HIV. It’s a great way to receive global updates on the latest evidence, advocacy materials and opportunities. Find out more at www.childrenandhiv.org and sign up for our Advocacy Network.
