Help AIDSPortal to better meet your needs - survey

AIDSPortal would like to invite you to participate in a short survey that will help us to better meet your knowledge management needs related to HIV and AIDS. The survey is open until March 28th 2008 and should take no more than 10 minutes of your time. Click here to take the survey now.

Why are you asking me for feedback on AIDSPortal?

AIDSPortal is a global initiative that aims to facilitate greater knowledge sharing and networking among organisations involved in the response to HIV and AIDS. It focuses on developing or adapting simple tools that can support country led networking and knowledge sharing. AIDSPortal primarily works in partnership with networks and seeks to strengthen their ability to support the response to the AIDS epidemic.

The tools that make up the AIDSPortal knowledge management platform are focused on three key areas:
  • Electronically share and organise information, including policy, best practice, programme experiences, events, and jobs
  • Connect people and organisations involved in a national response to HIV and AIDS
  • Consult and provide feedback on key policy or programmatic topics
These tools are currently internet based (see www.aidsportal.org) but we are exploring how we could also use other technologies, such as cell phone and fax, in order to expand access to HIV and AIDS knowledge. This survey is the first part of a process to improve these tools, taking advantage of new needs and technical developments.

How can I learn about the survey results?

Survey results will be available on this blog as well as highlighted in the AIDSPortal monthly newsletters.

What will the results be used for?

We will use the results from the survey to better understand your needs and inform our future plans. We will make an anonymous version of the findings available to anyone interested. This will not include any comments that you make or your name, should you choose to provide it.

Thank you in advance for your participation.
