Commitment to Action

Network of Faith-Based AIDS Responders in Sub-Saharan Africa

Commitment by

Georgetown University

In 2008, Georgetown University and its partners committed to develop a network of faith-based HIV/AIDS responders throughout Sub-Saharan Africa, in order to increase their funding and thus help scale up their response to the pandemic. The University will assist the network in developing best practices and provide technical assistance to increase these organizations' efficiency and capacity in addressing HIV/AIDS.
At last reporting in 2011, Georgetown University has partnered with the National Catholic Health Service of Ghana to pilot their program. This pilot phase of the network building process will work to develop and implement sustainable capacity building programs. The first five years of the program will focus on organizational development, best practice sharing, and leadership identification and development.
