LIVING2008 Evaluation Report

LIVING2008: The Positive Leadership Summit was the twelfth International Conference of People living with HIV, but was a first in many other things. It was the first International Conference of people living with HIV organised by a consortium of 11 agencies, known as the LIVING2008 Partnership, with GNP+ acting as the ‘secretariat’ for the Partnership. In addition, the LIVING2008 was the first International Conference of People living with HIV organised immediately prior to an International AIDS Conference (IAC).

To record the experiences and assess the outcomes and impact of the conference an independent evaluation was commissioned. The aim of the evaluation was:

  • To assess the strengths and weaknesses of the Summit and the processes leading up to it;
  • To assess the immediate and medium term impacts for participants;
  • To assess the extent that participants felt that the Summit developed and articulated leadership positions as well as developing leadership; and
  • To provide baseline data and observations to inform possible future collaborative work among the LIVING2008 Partnership members.

The evaluation concentrated primarily on capturing the perspective of the people who participated in the Summit. Data was collected through an online survey.
