SALT à Goma

j'aimerai raconter mon experience salt que j'ai vécu au Nord Kivu.

Mon travail consistait à former des relais communautaires vivant dans les camps de Goma à identifier les enfants souffrant d'handicap pour qu'ils puissent nous les référer.

la formation se déroule en une journée dans une des tentes prêtée par une des ONG partenaires. J'avais pu formé la médecin qui travaillait avec moi à la facilitation car le sujet du SIDA l'interessait vivement. Nous avons demandé aux dix… Continue

Primary Health Care (PHC): Back to the Future?

PHC: Now more than ever. That is how WHO labels its 2008 report. Should we rejoice? Are we turning the page of the nineties, the decennium horribile during which only vertical thinking was authorized? Are we allowed to go horizontal again? For all of us who dedicated our professional lives to PHC during the seventies and the eighties, the temptation is great to rejoice and relax.

PHC however was conceptually flawed then, and it is still flawed now for one main reason: it… Continue

I'm coming out

I want to share how I grew up because I want people to know so that, it would be beneficial to all of them. As an elder son I had a lot of responsibilities and unexpected burdens. Being an MSM this had doubled. I did not have the skills to handle them or address them. At that stage with my orientation, I took sex work as my profession. My sexuality and profession exposed to my friends and I saw their hardships, the exploitation and violence by local thugs, clients and the Police men. I also met… Continue

I am a Supermodel!

We were organizing young people as Peer Educators in urban poor communities in Metro Manila as part of the PRRM HIV/AIDS Prevention Project. At some point, we wanted to measure how far they have achieved in terms of peer education work. The challenge was to create an assessment tool that would be highly appropriate among gang members, young girls, young MSMs and sex workers. It was agreed that the tool would be self-defined, meaning the indicators for progress would come from our young… Continue

Sustained action in PNG after projects come to an end

This is Regina from Genoka settlement in Goroka, Papua New Guinea. Genoka is one of the most notorious settlements in the country. No NGO has entered before, mainly due to safety concerns. Only occasional volunteers distribute condoms. Genoka is now one of the exemplary communities striving for AIDS Competence. Former criminals turned into community facilitators, people take action on their concerns and Regina is making ‘bilungs’ (woven bags) and hats… Continue

Starfish at Indonesia:

Weeks ago Laurence has sent us a format to update the status of National Facilitation Team (NFT) at Indonesia. What is the name of the NFT? How many members, how big it is? So on and so forth. This blog hopes and intents to reply her questions.

Formally ACP has put its first foot print in Indonesia in 2006. I believe long before that knowingly or unknowingly Indonesians were practicing SALT in their day to day lives. UNFPA embarked… Continue

It's difficult to understand when it is just said and written, we all need to see it "in loco"

More than what I expected happened in a few days visit to some communities in Maputo (south of Mozambique - capital), Manica and Sofala (Central Region). A team of the ACP coachers and some of the Mozambique facilitation team plus me (of course not yet trained) paid a visit to some of Disabled people organizations implementing the ACP and some that are not.

On my first thought would have been a kind of refreshing training by the constellation coachers to the national team in an… Continue

Now I am a confident Woman - Happy Women's Day

Dear Forum

Happy Women's Day

Women are more vulnerable to HIV/AIDS. It is scientifically proved that HIV is transmitted 8 times more efficiently from men to women than from women to men.

I am a 22 years old; I got married at 19 years old with a truck driver. We had good relations for six months. After that he passed away with severe symptoms of AIDS and it’s transmitted to me. What I have to do now? I am a 22 years old and I am a HIV positive? I am a Young… Continue

Kitchen Garden

During our last Salt visit to Agai Community we were impressed by the strengths the community has. In most cases when we go out for such visits we assume the community will ask for handouts from us. This is not the case in that community.

From one of our community conversations 1 support group of PLWA’s had a story to share with us and others across the country and the world. The story of the Kitchen Garden. The group has… Continue

The Power Of Transgenders In Jakarta


If we talking about youth, its not limited only in common youth that separated into two differences based on sex, which are female youth and male youth. But we have to remember also the differences of youth that based on gender or sexual orientation, where there are some youth identified as homosexual, lesbian, transgender etc. Especially for young transgender, it can't be forgot that they are among us and an integrated part of life.

« Tout changement de mentalité a toujours été difficile. Il ne s’opère pas du jour au lendemain mais avec un peu de volonté et de persévérance, on y arrive toujours »

Il y a environ deux années aujourd’hui, quelques ONG, écoles, associations et autres organisations à assises communautaires de la commune de Yolo dans la ville de Kinshasa se sont décidées, grâce au Salt, de créer une concertation des structures pour la compétence face au sida. Elles se rencontrent tous les premiers… Continue
