Long-term More and better learning programmes concerning HIV/AIDS on community media
Immediate - Consultative online discussions among community media and HIV/AIDS groups to assess needs and capacities - A regional, intersectoral strategy meeting (see need, below) on Developing effective learning programmes on HIV/AIDS as part of the 2009 Pan African Conference: Increasing the Effectiveness of Community Radio - Constructive, action-oriented dialogue between community media and HIV/AIDS groups
NEED: We need to discuss what our aim is and whether we conceive of this as a strategy meeting, a workshop or a seminar; it may well be a mix of all three...
Follow-up: - National- or district-level intersectoral planning workshops - Community-level programme development workshops
Key elements: - Advocacy on AIDS treatment literacy: understanding treatment literacy as a strategy to fight AIDS - Advocacy on community media for learning: promoting new approaches to community radio content: rights-based, learner-centred and collective, participatory content creation - Training on programme development approach - Ongoing knowledge process: "training advocates/trainers", systems for information sharing
The meeting is conceived in the context of our work using media as tools for open and distance learning, specifically advocacy concerning community radio and health groups to create effective educational content.
