Self/Community Assessment Framework on HIV for Trinidad and Tobago

Dear Friends,


Our new friends from Trinidad and Tobago are in the process of developing their National AIDS Coordinating Program (NACP) and are doing it through the Competence Process. Consequently, please help them to tinker with the Self Assessment framework. Looking forwards to everyone from the T&T ACP Event to land on this page and give their inputs online after the workshop, so that we can all together continue on the journey towards Competence. A couple of days ago…

Samraksha recently organized an inspiration sharing event for community volunteers to share their experiences. 


This is a powerful sharing by a woman leader Parvatamma on how she helped fight stigma in the community through her personal action and ensured adequate livelihood for women affected by HIV in her community.

First of all, we are All Human

Digesting all my learning from a week in Samara, a beautiful Russian city at the Wolga, it appears to me, now clearer then ever, that SALT is a natural process. It reminds us to be ‘normal’, to be the human beings we are in all our interactions.

Natasya, in her wheelchair during our last (in a series of 6) SALT visits that week says it beautifully:

“These meetings with your team once again proved that it is not important how we look, what language we speak, what confession we are…

During the After Action Review on this mornings SALT visit to a Roman Catholic Community in Samara (Russia) I see a new Elena.

Suis-je sûr?

Il est 19h00 le 20 juin. Rui nous  ramène de Boëne à Maputo, après la première journée du festival du savoir au Mozambique. Après un trajet de 30 km, nous nous arrêtons à un feu rouge au sommet d'une colline. Les membres de l'équipe devisent  à l'arrière de la voiture. Rui profite de l'arrêt pour répondre à ses sms. Il organise avec son équipe  des visites SALT pour 100 participants pour demain,  ce n’est pas une mince affaire !

Pendant qu’il écrit, nous sentons un choc à l'arrière…

Am I sure?

It is 07:00 PM on June 20. Rui is driving us back from Boene to Maputo, after the first day of the Mozambique knowledge fair. After a 30 km ride, we stop at a red traffic light at the top of a hill. Team members chat in the back of the car. Rui takes advantage of the stop to respond to few text messages. He and his team are organizing SALT visits for 100 participants for tomorrow, not a small endeavor!

As he is writing, we feel a shock at the rear of our vehicle. Rui stops writing,…

Bringing ACP to Trinidad

We have finally arrived in Trinidad. After all the planning by the Constellation and UNAIDS Trinidad, we are here ready to transfer the AIDS competence process to of Trinidadian friends. Sometimes we fail to acknowledge and appreciate those that work behind the scenes; those that put together the bits and pieces. So I just want to say thank you to all those that worked so hard behind the scenes in putting this Trinidad experience together.


After a really good breakfast this…

SALT et Kung Fu à Matola

C'est l'hiver austral au Mozambique. Le ciel est bleu, sans nuages ​​à l'horizon, le soleil luit, mais l'air est frais et sec. Dans ce quartier du sud de Matola, à 35 km de Maputo, nous marchons sur la piste de sable bordée de haies d'euphorbe entourant  de modestes maisons. Des femmes nous regardent passer, assises à côté de leurs étals, sur lesquels sont disposés quelques produits de première nécessité. Ici et là, des tas de vêtements pour la vente de seconde main.

SALT and Kung Fu in South Matola

It is winter in Mozambique. The sky is blue, with no clouds in sight; still the air is fresh and crisp. In this neighborhood of South Matola, 35km away from Maputo, we walk on the sandy track along the small houses bordered by euphorbia hedges. Women sit next to their stalls, selling a wide range of daily life necessities. Here and there they display heaps of clothes for second hand sale.

Our SALT team is on its way to respond to the invitation of a woman whom we just met during a…

Goodbye conflict, welcome development!

I want to share with you this article, which has inspired me today. It is about the International Dialogue for Peacebuilding and Statebuilding, which is a series of multi-stakeholder meetings led by the g7+ (not to be confused with the G7), a group of fragile countries (including Liberia, South Sudan, DRC, Afghanistan and others).  This group are advocating for peacebuilding and statebuilding to be placed at the forefront of international development.


What I like about this…
