Dear Rajapanthula, thank you for your posting which points out that we should acknowledge specific dynamics in communities to which we need to pay attention to, including the role of women. This includes us as facilitators in community settings. How can we ensure women get a voice in the AIDS Competence Process? There are several facilitation techniques (f.e. splitting up in sub-groups to build a separate women's dream/ vision of self-assessment). Afterwards the sharing in plenary is then essential to merge views of different community groups.

Could you share a positive experience in your context that showed how women took ownership of their HIV response? I would like to learn more about it.

Many thanks,
