|Chapter 2: Examples of UNAIDS partnerships with NGOs|
Partnerships with civil society have been developed in a number of ways in the three years since UNAIDS was set up. Guidelines are currently being prepared to explain how partnerships work at all levels, what UNAIDS has to offer to civil society organizations, and how civil society can enhance the expanded response to the epidemic.
An important part of the process is communication. In Geneva, the UNAIDS NGO Liaison Office is establishing a pool of key partners at the global level so that information paths to civil society organizations can be developed and sustained. News of this pool will be included in the monthly UNAIDS newsletter, The Action Brief.
Many partnerships have already been set up between UNAIDS and NGOs, at global, regional and country levels. The following are some examples.
