PLHIV Leadership in the MENA Region
From 2005–2010, the "Investing in PLHIV Leadership in MENA" initiative strengthened the capacity of people living with HIV (PLHIV) in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region through training, mentoring, and small grants. The initiative sought to build social capital of PLHIV in the region, promote greater investment in PLHIV, and foster policy dialogue and advocacy. On the path to strengthened PLHIV leadership in MENA's HIV response, the initiative has achieved several outcomes. PLHIV have formed a regional network; women living with HIV have started support groups for other women affected in the region; and National AIDS Programs have contributed funding to support expansion of PLHIV-led activities in-country. In addition, the initiative produced four curricula to help build the capacity of PLHIV in the region.
