Share and conquer: Pooling our programming know-how

20150105-ericaleeBy Erica Lee

A while back, CATIE wanted to find out what’s been done across the country to assess the frontline needs of HIV and hepatitis C service providers and service users. As the information specialist (or librarian) here at CATIE, I was duly tasked with locating whatever reports I could find.

Where do we go from here?

By Laurie Edmistonledmiston_1

Recently I was asked to speak at an event organized by Alex McClelland and Nicole Greenspan called “Where Do We Go From Here? AIDS Organizing, Services, Bureaucracy & the State.” The event aimed to address a number of questions, including:

  • What are the limits of current community-based practice based on engagement with the state?
  • Are today’s AIDS service organizations (ASOs) adequately resourced and designed to undertake their intended role?
  • Is the role sufficient to address the ongoing and emerging HIV issues that marginalized communities face?
  • Due to state constraints, what are the consequences on advocacy possibilities for ASOs, or ASO involvement in social and policy change?

Whew! How Foucauldian!
