  • 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.
    • The Constellation
    • Our starting point
    • Ownership + strengths = local response
  • 2.
    • Let’s ask ourselves a question…..
    • … can communities progress in terms of HIV ?
  • 3.
    • Source: HIV and Health Care Reform in Phayao . UNAIDS, Geneva, April 2000.
    They can in Northern Thailand….
  • 4.
    • Source: Kamall et al. AIDS 2000, 14: 427-434
    HIV prevalence rate among 13-19 year old in Masaka, Uganda They could in Uganda…..
  • 5.
      • Progress also happens in Tanzania, Burkina Faso and other countries….
      • The key question is...
  • 6. What distinguishes these countries from others?
  • 7. In these countries, people have taken local ownership of the issue “ This is OUR problem and we are going to do something about it!”
  • 8. People drive effective responses to HIV Health services are needed but don’t replace what people do for themselves
  • 9. Once communities take ownership, they will respond locally to the issue Local Response Local Response Local Response Local Response Local Response Local Response Local Response Local Response Local Response Local Response Local Response Local Response
  • 10. What does this mean for a HIV strategy?
    • Local
    • ownership
    Prevention Care Mitigation Is a strategic pillar that complements
  • 11. But, is local ownership enough to drive local responses? …..
  • 12. …… .No, because communities underestimate their capacity “ We know it’s a problem, but don’t have the resources to respond” “ We are waiting for the experts” “ We are victims”
  • 13. Therefore, we must reveal their capacity & strengths
  • 14. Once communities know their strengths , their self-confidence grows..…..
  • 15. … .and they’ll use their strengths to address their problems “ We can do this together!”
  • 16. s So what do Constellation coaches do?
  • 17.
    • Our coaches:
    • Foster reveal to stimulate
    • Ownership + strengths = local response
  • 18. How do we do this?
  • 19. Well, our experience around the world shows...
  • 20. Communities are S timulated to change behaviour when others That is why our Way of Working is SALT A ppreciate their strengths T ransfer their learning to other contexts L earn actively and link them to others
  • 21. SALT reveals the community’s capacity to build a vision for the future, assess their situation, act, adapt and learn We call this cycle, the Community Life Competence Process.
  • 22. The Community Life Competence Process (CLCP)
  • 23. So communities think and act by themselves… … and we support them & reveal strengths
  • 24. You might think: Does this really work ?
  • 25. UNAIDS Evaluation (2005) "between 83% and 87% [of AIDS Competence Process users] are satisfied and confident that the program achieves impact within communities. WHO-UNICEF Evaluation Papua New Guinea (2009) “ 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.” Roll Back Malaria / MACEPA Evaluation (2008) “ The Malaria Competence process is very likely to foster a strong sense of community ownership and led to a surge in community-led initiatives”
  • 26. And read hundreds of blogs from more than 20 countries on
  • 27. Or you can subscribe to our online course
  • 28. You might think: How much does it cost ?
  • 29. The process is cost-effective “ T he 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) The Constellation is cost-effective “ The administrative overhead costs of the Constellation in 2008 amounted to 5,8% “ - Belgian Ministry of Finance (2009) Tools and online course can be accessed for free
