Taking Part: Campaign Planning
Posted on: May 15 2014, 12:18 pm

As part of the Taking Part Project we will run a workshop to plan our advocacy campaign.

Building on the previous sessions, in which we looked at  our rights, as people living with HIV, and NHS influencing structures, we will use this session to look at our advocacy objectives and plan a focused campaign. We will select specific issues we want, as a group,  to address and effect change.

The session is open to all people living with HIV, even if you have not attended previous sessions. You do not need any previous campaigning experience.

It will be held :

Tuesday 27th May
from 5:30 to 8 pm
Positively UK
345 City Road
London  EC1V 1LR


Taking Part is a program that aims to skill up people living with HIV to influence health and social care decision making . It is a series of 12 workshops which will look at developing skills and an agenda for change set by people living with HIV. The project is open to people living with HIV in London who want to get involved, or are already involved, in health and social care policy. It will be peer led but we will also invite in skilled facilitators.

If you would like to attend please confirm with Spetretti@positivelyuk.org

Further information and all materials shared at previous workshops are available on our page

Hello UKCAB,

I really hope many will be able to come as we have a brilliant facilitator Aditi Sharma.

Aditi has been a passionate campaigner for social justice since her student days in India. She has run a diversity of campaigns in Asia, Africa and Europe ranging from defending indigenous peoplesí land rights to protesting against the inequities of free-trade agreements.
 
In 1999, Aditi was inspired to work in solidarity with HIV-positive activists, trade unionists and others in Southern Africa demanding access to HIV treatment. Over the past decade, Aditi's activism has focused primarily on promoting the rights of people living with HIV. She continues to work alongside with people living with HIV and their organisations to support them to gather evidence, develop campaigns and win policy changes in countries across the world.

Aditi has worked with Action for Southern Africa, ActionAid International, International Treatment Preparedness Coalition, Global Network of People Living with HIV.
