Twinning is a formal, substantive collaboration between two organizations. Twinning encourages civil society organizations to collaborate and form partnerships with like-minded organizations in other countries or regions and provides a platform for the exchange of knowledge and strengthening of capacity.
ICAD’s twinning program has promoted the development of HIV/AIDS partnerships between Canadian and overseas organizations. Our involvement began with the publication of Beyond Our Borders, a step-by-step guide which introduces community-based HIV/AIDS organizations to the twinning model.
ICAD is proud to be launching a new twinning project as part of CARE Canada’s Southern African Nutrition Initiative (SANI). SANI is a four- year project being implemented through a partnership between CARE Canada, CUSO International, McGill University and ICAD and is funded by Global Affairs Canada. ICAD’s twinning initiative within SANI will build the capacity of civil society organizations in Canada, Malawi and Zambia to address the intersections between gender, nutrition, food security and HIV.
