Though social media and ICT are ripe with potential when it comes to the delivery of HIV-related services, as fairly new approaches, there is still much to learn about how to optimize their use. Digital Liaisons contains a variety of lessons, ideas, resources and examples of interventions that use social media and ICT in the context of HIV prevention, education, treatment, advocacy and support. The case studies featured in the resource highlight initiatives that were carried out by community-based organizations, who were kind enough to share their reflections, suggestions and recommendations with us.

Building on ICAD’s extensive history of twinning, knowledge exchange and capacity development, Addressing HIV in Canada and Globally offers us programmatic approaches, insights, and lessons learned in responding to complex social and structural factors that continue to disempower and drive HIV infection rates globally. While the focus of these case studies often speaks to HIV programming, the lessons presented here can easily be applied to other sexually transmitted and blood borne infections (STBBIs) and settings, including in Canada, to ensure that no one is left behind. This resource features innovative projects led by ICAD members including, Rooftops Canada, Handicap International, Help Lesotho, CARE Canada, and World University Service Canada (WUSC).

The purpose of this toolkit is to assist Canadian organizations working with international partners to effectively engage in their work.

Other multiple and intersecting factors, such as gender, immigration status, sexual orientation and language also increase vulnerability to and risk of HIV infection.

The Benefits of International Twinning Projects for HIV/AIDS Programming in Canada and for Canadian Organization reports the lessons learned by 20 ASOs who participated in twinning projects with organizations working in HIV/AIDS in developing countries. The report provides convincing arguments as to how ASO programming in Canada has been improved by exposure to international twinning opportunities.
