The project

Our history with the Positive Action programme goes back to our roots, beginning with a one-year grant in 2003/2004 to support the formation of the network. Since that time we’ve continued to collaborate with Positive Action on programming designed to:

  • Develop a stronger and more effective organisation and network.
  • Make effective and meaningful contributions to regional and national policies related to HIV/AIDS.
  • Facilitate continuous exchange among non-governmental and community-based organisations (NGOs and CBOs) on best practices and lessons learned in order to advance the HIV response in Europe and Central Asia.
