We are pleased to announce that the Caregivers Action Network and the Care and Support Initiative of the UK Consortium on AIDS and International Development will be hosting the Caregivers Networking Zone in the Global Village at the International AIDS Conference in Washington DC from 22-27 July. The zone is being supported by The UN Social Protection Care and Support Working Group and are sharing the zone space with The Ecumenical Advocacy Alliance for a joint focus on caregiving and faith.
The Caregivers Networking Zone will provide a platform for our collective memberships of close to 1000 organisations and individuals to advocate for increased focus on care and support and the contribution of caregivers.
- Share experiences and build skills on caregiving, care and support and social protection
- Explore linkages between care and support, prevention and treatment and the role of care and support in a comprehensive HIV response
- Demonstrate caregivers contribution to achieving HIV and broader development goals
- Highlight how caregivers must be supported and included in the HIV response
We are calling for applications to present in the programme of the Networking Zone from grassroots caregivers, NGOs, faith-based organizations, networks, researchers, institutions and other organizations and leaders in policy, programming and advocacy on care, support and caregivers from around the world . Join us in advancing these objectives!
Please complete the application form and submit it to email@example.com by Friday 18 May. You will be notified if your session has been accepted in June. Please note: applications submitted after the deadline and not within the format and length specified will not be considered. Please send any queries to firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to receiving your application and to working with you in Washington.
