Rob and Anne's Arusha Adventure - the pursuit of an Eastern African Knowledge Platform


On Wednesday June 9 Rob Worthington, AIDSPortal Manager and Anne Babcock, AIDSPortal Facilitator for Eastern Africa set out on the long, bumpy and dusty bus ride from Nairobi, Kenya to Arusha, Tanzania. The scenery was great and we think we almost caught a glimpse of Kilimanjaro!

However, we didn’t venture to Tanzania just to go on safari, but to work with AIDSPortal, the Eastern Africa National Networks of AIDS Service Organizations (EANNASO) www.eannaso.org. EANNASO and AIDSPortal are collaborating on Eastern Africa Knowledge Management Initiative. The Eastern Africa Knowledge Management Initiative is part of the TACIT project (Tackling AIDS and TB Through Communication, Information Technology), a project implemented by numerous partners in Eastern and Southern Africa and lead by the International HIV/AIDS Alliance.

The main thrust of the Eastern Africa Knowledge Management Initiative is a regional collaborative, information sharing and social networking website called HIV Alert. HIV Alert will provide a dedicated space for individuals and organizations involved in the response to HIV and TB to share information and network one another. One of its key features will be to sign-up to email and SMS and Email alerts for new content relevant to you. This will help expand the reach of information to people who don’t have consistent internet access.

Additional features of HIV Alert will include:
•Contacts directory for people and organizations
•Document libraries – Toolkit, research, donor reports, best practice
•Events listing
•Job opportunities
•Funding opportunities
•eForums
•Chat/instant messaging
•Country focused pages
•Video libraries
•Photos libraries

EANNASO and AIDSPortal are excited about progress made during our time in Arusha. We will be ready to launch HIV Alert in a few months. In preparation for the launch we’ll be holding a meeting in September in Nairobi for organizations who would like to learn more and get involved with the Eastern Africa Knowledge Management Initiative. To learn more please email me anne@aidsportal.org and watch this space for further project updates.

Thank you EANNASO for making our trip a success! To learn more about EANNASO’s work please visit www.eannaso.org.

(HIV Alert is part of a 2 year European Commission funded programmes called TACIT - Tackling AIDS and TB Through Communication and Information Technology. It is a joint project lead by the International HIV/AIDS Alliance. Other partners include SAfAIDS, The Alliance Zambia, The Alliance Uganda and NANASO)
