Confidential Draft: Attendees of T&T Community AIDS Competence Process


  • On the 4-7th July, UNAIDS hosted an AIDS Competence Workshop held at Hotel Normandie, bringing together several stakeholders within the government and the civil society organisations and PLHIV.
  • The mechanism introduced being SALT. That being Stimulate, Appreciate, Learn and Transfer.
  • The main goals being to impact the introspection/reflection of the Human heart as it relates to the ways of working and interactions of the attendees.
  • The process was effectively applied upon the execution of two SALT visits  in two communities, Youth and PLHIV.
  • Within the Manifesto of the People’s Partnership in order for a united people to achieve sustainable development for Trinidad and Tobago we must have prosperity for all, a statement which highlights all key areas, including:
  • Strengthen implementation of the National HIV policy.
  • Develop a policy to promote healthier lifestyles.
  • Lifestyle campaign to achieve healthy lifestyles.
  • Stake Holders advisory council

What has been achieved

—  Having now reviewed the ways in which we work, several things have come forth.

—  A draft Action Plan for the way of moving forward has been formulated.

—  A draft Vision Statement has also been written.

—  Using ten practices of the Self/Community Assessment Framework based solely on HIV/AIDS we were able to asses both where we are at currently as well as where we need to be, i.e Level 5 (this practice is part of out lifestyle)

—  There was a clear consensus based on the ten practices that we as a country have achieved. Generally we are only at level 3 (We act, sporadically and unreliably)

—  Thus a number of draft plans have been created to move forward to getting the country at level 5 as part of our country lifestyle that in turn leads to behaviour change

Ways of Moving Forward

—  We  propose to have a country coordinating mechanism that would speak to social investment and not social dependency and as such facilitate a process that would build a functioning networking system between government and the civil society. (NGO, CBO, FBO)

—  Law Reform

—  HIV Coordinators within each Ministry.

—  Proper focal points at community levels and MARP.


—  Imagination is a vehicle which take you anywhere you want to go, without it you go nowhere.

—  Investing in the lives of citizens of the people of Trinidad and Tobago means the preservation of our equitable Humanity, Economy, continued Development and Sustainability.

Hi Autry,

Good to see this power point, and all its suggestions put up for discussions. We have more than ten from T&T, who attended the event signed up here on ACP Ning. So, you can look forward to them contributing to develop this draft action plan to a more concrete one.

Hello Autry,

I registered a group online here but there has been no response ans when I chked my page I did not see any history that is was created can you please confirm.

I also would like to know about the next step with regards to the training, and can some of my members of RED do the 1st part of the course ( which we did at the workshop in TnT) online?
