AIDSPortal adventures at AIDS 2010!

AIDSPortal is pleased to report back a brilliant time at the International AIDS Conference in Vienna last week. We had a really busy busy time and are still catching our breath. It was a very exciting place full of energy, colour, insight and vast experience on civil society from all over the world and their experience and response to the AIDS epidemic. AIDSPortal’s main event was Tuesday’s Global Village Session entitled, “Beyond Access: using technology to create a space for community-led approaches to HIV and human rights”. We had 80 participants come and hear panelists speak about how they are using information communication technology (ICT) amongst communities in the response to HIV. Panelists included Sara Page from SAfAIDS, Alice Klein from the Key Correspondent Programme, Robinson Muigai from KANCO and David Cozac from AIDS Legal Exchange. Their presentations were followed by lively small group discussions about people’s experiences, ideas, challenges and questions about ICT and their work.

AIDSPortal had an exhibition booth (shared with the Kenya AIDS NGOs Consortium) in the Global Village, which ended up being rather conveniently and strategically located to the ‘Community Café’. The café provided a.) free coffee and chocolate and b.) the opportunity for us to lure people to our booth who were queuing for free coffee and chocolate.

Needless to say the booth had a lot traffic and it served a good opportunity to highlight:

  1. the new regional website we’re just about ready to launch www.hivsouthernafrica.info (in conjunction with SAfAIDS, AIDS Alliance, Soul City, UNAIDS, USAID and others)
  2. the new regional Eastern Africa site coming soon www.hivalert.net (in partnership with EANNASO)
  3. the re-launch of AIDSPortal www.aidsportal.org. Coming very soon!
People who dropped by were also able to sign up to email alerts for funding and employment opportunities (if you’re interested in doing the same please contact me anne@aidsportal.org).
