Dutch government says farewell to the fight against AIDS? I don’t think so!
The Dutch government is planning to drastically cut the budget for the international fight against AIDS. This includes the Dutch contribution to UNAIDS and the Global Fund to fight Aids, TB and Malaria. This is unacceptable. In a time of economic crisis governments need to cut budgets. But not a budget that will threaten 180.000 lives. Help us prevent a tragedy!

I visited three cities in DR-Congo the last 3 weeks. In each city, the AIDS Competence Process, called l’approche SALT’ here has been implemented for 9 months with impressive results.
For example, I was in Matadi in the province Bas-Congo. Facilitators and members of the communities shared beautiful changes in their community. Discrimination went down, people now talked about sexuality and HIV in their family, PLHIV came out in public, large groups went for testing and a general…

In the last week of October, something extraordinary happened in Koppal. I have been thinking about it for the past few weeks trying to understand what raised the whole experience to the sublime.
People came from 4 continents , strangers to each other mostly, and definitely to the communities in Koppal, and to most of us in Bangalore. They came to stimulate, appreciate and learn from communities and also to share their own special experiences. People have visited us and our… Continue

The first day when she requested him to use condoms he was not convinced. He thought why the need to use condoms when they are in a relationship. S Devi explained to him that she… Continue

Il y trois semaines, notre équipe SALT a rendu visite à Asha Jyoti, un centre d’accueil et de soins pour les personnes vivant avec le SIDA. Rien ne m’a préparé à ce qui allait suivre, car cette visite allait faire éclater en morceaux ma conception de l'organisation des soins de santé. Je cherche encore à comprendre ce que j'ai vu, entendu et ressenti.

About three weeks ago, our SALT team visited Asha Jyoti, a centre caring for People Living with AIDS. This visit shattered into pieces my thinking about the organization of health care. My mind and soul are still processing what I saw, heard and felt. I’ll try to share why.
We traveled from Koppal to Kushtagi, about 40 minutes away, through rice, millet and sugarcane fields. On the way our car squashed millet spread on the road, its wheels… Continue

Last week, we had the opportunity for the second support visit to IIRR Partners in Ethiopia. We were hosted by JeCCDO in Dire Dawa and joined by SOS Borana. On the second day of the visit, we spent a few hours thinking through how ACP and the IIRR Community Managed Disaster Risk Reduction (CMDRR) processes compliment and add value to each other. Then we made a visit to a community where 7 months ago JeCCDO had 'introduced' the dream and self-assessment. We spent the first hour sitting with… Continue

In this video I share about the experiences of the recent SALT visits in Karnataka. A group of people who shared Samraksha's belief in communities had heard about our work through different channels, and made the effort to come, visit and learn from the communities. It was a great learning experience, and once again by hearing about the community actions, listening to community representatives speak about wanting to respond to HIV, and already initiating responses, hearing about positive… Continue
