Community-Based Organizations: Fostering resilience to turn the tide of AIDS in Africa

For several years now, the Foundation has been asserting that if only a critical mass of community-based organizations could receive adequate funding, they would turn the tide of HIV & AIDS in Africa. In 2015, we developed an innovative new Impact Assessment Framework to help tell this story. Now, we are delighted to share our first major chronicling of this impact with you!

This new Year in Review provides concrete evidence that, with meaningful support, community-based organizations are indeed achieving powerful and lasting change. Its pages resonate with hope and purpose, and reaffirm the remarkable progress that is made when grassroots organizations receive the support they need.

The road is still long. With 1.2 million AIDS-related deaths in 2014, and 1.4 million new HIV infections in sub-Saharan Africa alone, there is still much to be done. But it is clear from this snapshot of the herculean efforts of grassroots groups and people struggling to reclaim life and overcome the ravages of AIDS, that with the proper support and solidarity, they will prevail.
