    • Bringing it Together Sara Page Deputy Director Southern Africa HIV/AIDS Information Dissemination Service
      • Recognising the challenges with regard to information:
      • Credibility and reliability
      • Access
      • Applicability and Relevance
      • Yet…noting all the potential opportunities available through new/modern technologies- there is a need to create a system/platform to ‘bring it together’
      •  
      • A system that:
        • Using available and upcoming tools
        • Builds on existing capacities
        • Strengthens partnerships
        • Makes information- available, accessible and open to diverse stakeholders.
    • National Partnership Platforms
      • National partnership platforms provide a mechanism for collaboration and a means of harnessing the energies of civil society organisations contributing to an effective response to HIV and tuberculosis (TB).
      • Function as collaborative arrangements aimed at enhancing performance and achieving measurable improvements in the national response to HIV and TB.
      • Focused objectives ( for information sharing and advocacy) outlined at the outset, and partners must commit to supporting and contributing to their realisation.
      • Example: Partners Zimbabwe; Partners Zambia
    •  
      • Key principles
        • Local ownership
        • Partnership
