Taking action to support the active and meaningful involvement of the community sector

How can the active and meaningful involvement of the community sector be depicted?

The community sector’s involvement in national coordination of HIV/AIDS is threefold:

  1. Within coordination structures and systems (influencing stakeholders, making decisions, etc.).
  2. Linked to coordination structures (receiving resources, implementing projects, etc.).
  3. External to coordination structures and systems (acting as an independent watchdog, advocating for change, etc.).
The community sector can and must try to play all of these roles, requiring support to build its own capacity, leadership and coordination.

The ‘ideal’ active and meaningful involvement of the community sector has a number of common characteristics within national coordination bodies and processes, such as AIDS Authorities, Action Frameworks and M&E Systems.
