How do we say ‘thank you’ in a profound way? A way that connects us on a deeper level, by which we can learn and improve ourselves. I saw an inspiring lecture of Marchall Rosenberg, the founder of ‘Non Violent Communication’
, were he explained the key to express our gratitude. We can also use these steps to express what we appreciate in communities we visit.
Marchall explained that at one of his workshops, a… Continue

En prétendant donner une leçon au Pape Benoît XVI, le parlement fédéral belge emboîte le pas aux réactions d’une rare virulence à la deuxième moitié de la troisième partie de sa brève allocution. Le pape serait-il autiste ? Préfèrerait-il la mort à la vie ? Traînons ce pontife devant les tribunaux pour non-assistance à personne en danger ! Rappelons notre ambassadeur !
C’est vrai que le pape a dit que le préservatif pouvait avoir un impact négatif. Evidemment, c’est faux dans les… Continue

People Living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) require an additional 20-30% of nutrition food for their healthy living. Many of these PLWHA will be unable to afford this due to health, socio-economic and livelihood deprivations. Due to this cause most of the PLHA are suffering from the Opportunistic infections and sick. It is decreasing the confidence levels of PLHA and thereby increased the death rate in People Living with HIV/AIDS.

Issue: There are many AIDS/HIV related organizations in Thailand. However, they operate their projects individually. Attempts were made in many areas to connect efforts between organizations. However, the connections were limited to only financial and human resources. The challenge therefore remains: how can we make each organization to virtually have one same goal, which will finally lead to the solutions for AIDS problems?
Description: Buddhism teaches its followers the importance… Continue

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

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 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

If all religious leaders take the lead in AIDS prevention, the people can live together in the community as human being.

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

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

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

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
