New Activist Toolkit from ITPC helps activists educate on, and advocate for, routine viral load monitoring
The International Treatment Preparedness Coalition is proud to announce the release of the Activist Toolkit: Campaigning for Routine Viral Load Monitoring.
The aim of the new Activist Toolkit is to enable and mobilize people living with HIV and activists to use science and evidence to advocate to decision makers and service providers for access to, and availability of, affordable routine viral load testing.
The Toolkit aims to inform and show the importance and value of routine viral load testing and to train community activists to passionately advocate about access to viral load testing for people living with HIV, including those from key populations.
The Toolkit is for advocacy champions, activists, civil society, trainers, and organizations that promote
access to HIV treatment, including access to routine viral load testing.
The Toolkit is now available in English, with French and Portuguese translations on the way.
The Toolkit was produced under a joint project with Médecins Sans Frontiéres (MSF) on increasing knowledge and awareness around routine viral load testing in 9 countries in sub-Saharan Africa, supported by UNITAID.
