AIDSFree has a new case study: Involving Persons Living with HIV Networks in
National HIV Policy Dialogue: A Case Study of MANET+ in Malawi
MANET+, the national coordinating body for community-based support groups in
Malawi, was founded in 1997 by a group of PLHIV who recognized the need to
organize their activities to achieve greater impact on national HIV policies.
This case study analyzes the engagement of CSOs in PMTCT policy and planning
and clarifies how to increase their involvement and impact. This document
describes Malawi�s enabling environment for CSO engagement in PMTCT policy;
advocacy, approaches that MANET+ uses to engage with decision-makers;
strategies for strengthening its policy and advocacy activities; and challenges
to creating change. It concludes with recommendations on how MANET+ could build
on current successes. These recommendations may also be useful for other CSOs
looking to increase the effectiveness of their policy and planning activities.
