Strengthening the Capacities of Sectors Involved in the National Response to HIV/AIDS Training

CAI’s International Division was contracted by UNAIDS in December 2007 to facilitate two trainings to build capacity of the sectors involved in the national response to HIV in Costa Rica, specifically the National Council for Integral HIV/AIDS Care (CONASIDA) and the Network of NGOs. These trainings responded to the first strategic area, Organization and Management, of the National Strategic Plan for the Prevention, Care and Assistance of HIV/AIDS 2007-2010.

The objectives of the training programs were: to strengthen the leadership, management, and advocacy capacities of members of CONASIDA; and to increase the technical capacity of the NGOs that work in HIV and with PLWHA in aspects related to the management and administration of projects, including strategic planning, monitoring and evaluation, and budgeting.
