  • This is point-prevalence, so shows the trend really well. It’s not a small sample. All conscripts of 21 year old have to go for (anonymous) HIV testing. At the moment, prevalence is 0,9% among the same demographic group. Key factor contributing to this progress after a 10-year research: LOCAL RESPONSES through ownership.
  • Progress in other countries as well, for example in Uganda.

    1. 1. The Constellation <br />Our starting point<br /> <br />Ownership + strengths = local response<br />
    2. 2. Let’s ask ourselves a question…..<br />…can communities progress in terms of HIV?<br />
    3. 3. They can in Northern Thailand….<br />Source: HIV and Health Care Reform in Phayao. UNAIDS, Geneva, April 2000.<br />
    4. 4. They could in Uganda…..<br />HIV prevalence rate among 13-19 year old in Masaka, Uganda<br />Source: Kamall et al. AIDS 2000, 14: 427-434<br />
    5. 5. Progress also happens in Tanzania, Burkina Faso and other countries….<br /> The key question is...<br />
    6. 6. What distinguishes these countries from others?<br />
    7. 7. In these countries, people have taken local ownershipof the issue<br />“This is OUR problem and we are going to do something about it!”<br />
    8. 8. People drive effective <br />responses to HIV<br />Health services are needed but don’t replace what people do for themselves<br />
    9. 9. Once communities take ownership, they will respond locally to the issue<br />Local Response<br />Local Response<br />Local Response<br />Local Response<br />Local Response<br />Local Response<br />Local Response<br />Local Response<br />Local Response<br />Local Response<br />Local Response<br />Local Response<br />
    10. 10. What does this mean for a HIV strategy?<br />Local <br />ownership<br />Prevention <br />Is a strategic pillar that complements<br />Care<br />Mitigation<br />
    11. 11. But, is local ownership enough to drive local responses? …..<br />
    12. 12. …….No, because communities underestimate their capacity<br />“We know it’s a problem, but don’t have the resources to respond”<br />“We are victims”<br />“We are waiting for the experts”<br />
    13. 13. Therefore, we must reveal their capacity & strengths<br />
    14. 14. Once communities know their strengths, their self-confidence grows..…..<br />
    15. 15. ….and they’ll use their strengths to address their problems<br />“We can do this together!”<br />
    16. 16. s<br />So what do Constellation coaches do? <br />
    17. 17. Our coaches:<br /> <br /> Foster revealto stimulate<br />Ownership + strengths = local response<br />
    18. 18. How do we do this? <br />
    19. 19. Well, our experience around the world shows...<br />
    20. 20. Communities are Stimulated to change behaviour when others<br />That is why our Way of Working is SALT <br />Appreciate their strengths<br />Learn actively and link them to others<br />Transfer their learning to other contexts<br />
    21. 21. SALT reveals the community’s capacity to build a vision for the future, assess their situation, act, adapt and learn<br />We call this cycle, the <br />Community Life Competence Process. <br />
    22. 22. The Community Life Competence Process (CLCP)<br />
    23. 23. So communities think and act by themselves…<br />…and we support them & reveal strengths<br />
    24. 24. You might think:<br />Does this really work?<br />
    25. 25. UNAIDS Evaluation (2005) <br />&quot;between 83% and 87% [of AIDS Competence Process users] are satisfied and confident that the program achieves impact within communities. <br />WHO-UNICEF Evaluation Papua New Guinea (2009) <br />“The AIDS Competence Process is an effective approach in combating HIV/AIDS through local empowerment. For its low-cost but often labor intensive input of resources, the output has been substantial.”<br />Roll Back Malaria / MACEPA Evaluation (2008)<br />“The Malaria Competence process is very likely to foster a strong sense of community ownership and led to a surge in community-led initiatives”<br />

    28. 28. You might think:<br />How much does it cost?<br />
    29. 29. The process is cost-effective<br />“The AIDS Competence Programme was found to be highly cost-effective when compared to other programmes (0.10 to US$ 2.00 per person reached )” – UNAIDS (2005)<br />The Constellation is cost-effective<br />“The administrative overhead costs of the Constellation in 2008 amounted to 5,8% “ - Belgian Ministry of Finance (2009)<br />Tools and online course can be accessed for free<br />
