Strategic Plan 2011 - 2015
The Global Network of People living with HIV (GNP+) has been at the forefront of the HIV response for the past 25 years. Driven by the needs of people living with HIV, we are part of a powerful, united social movement that strives to ensure that all voices of people living with HIV are heard.
The HIV response has changed immensely in the past five years: HIV medications became more accessible, effective and less expensive; human rights of people living with HIV gained increasing recognition, and HIV services were increasingly scaled-up. To meet the ever-growing needs and challenges of the HIV response, GNP+ has recognized the need to evolve with the times in order to continue to play an active role in guaranteeing the meaningful involvement and quality of life of people living with HIV.
To meet this goal, GNP+ has created a new Strategic Plan based on the realities people living with HIV are facing today. To inform the development of the Strategic Plan, GNP+ first undertook a consultative Strategic Review with people living with HIV, their networks, and other key stakeholders. The review explored key questions in three areas, focusing on the role, work, and governance of GNP+.
Incorporating recommendations from the Strategic Review, the Strategic Plan builds on past achievements and outlines our mission, vision, goal and purpose for the next five years. The Plan prioritises three pillars of work: global advocacy, global knowledge management, and global community building.
The complete Strategic Review is available here in English.
This webpage will host regular updates on the implementation of the new Strategic Plan.
GNP+ launches new Strategic Plan: focuses on advocacy, knowledge management and community building
The Global Network of People living with HIV (GNP+) is proud to present its new strategic plan for the period 2011 to 2015. At the forefront of the HIV response for 25 years, GNP+ knows its efforts to improve the meaningful involvement and quality of life of people living with HIV are critical to turning the tide towards the UNAIDS goal of zero new infections, zero AIDS-related deaths and zero discrimination. Building on past achievements and outlining the GNP+ mission, vision, goal and purpose, the Strategic Plan prioritizes three pillars of work: global advocacy, global knowledge management, and global community building.
The Strategic Plan follows recommendations from the 2010 Strategic Review of GNP+. “Some 1160 people living with HIV and partner organisations were consulted for the review, and we have listened carefully to their ideas and criticisms,” says Anna Zakowicz, one of the co-chairs of GNP+. “With the new Strategic Plan, GNP+ will be better able to fulfill the needs of people living with HIV globally and become more effective as the global voice for people living with HIV,” says Ms. Zakowicz.
The new five-year Strategic Plan is based on the realities people living with HIV face today. “GNP+ will work to support all people living with HIV through their organisations and networks,” says Anuar Luna, co-chair of GNP+.
“Through Positive Health, Dignity and Prevention, GNP+ hopes to strengthen the involvement of people living with HIV in the HIV response,” says Mr. Luna. Positive Health, Dignity and Prevention was developed through consultation with people living with HIV on ‘positive prevention’, resulting in a framework that describes the leadership of people living with HIV in the global HIV response.
In line with the Strategic Plan, GNP+ will further develop the Global Advocacy Agenda through consultations with people living with HIV globally towards LIVING2012, the 13th international conference of people living with HIV. GNP+ will also adjust its structure and function – at the Board and the Secretariat - to make sure that GNP+’s vision of a powerful and united worldwide social movement of people living with HIV becomes a reality.
