Avert has provided strategic support to GNP+ for the design and implementation of Voice+, a two-way digital platform to share information on HIV and COVID-19, addressing the specific concerns of people living with HIV during the COVID-19 pandemic. The digital platform includes a WhatsApp chatbot and a feedback mechanism to better understand the issues people living with HIV are facing during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our partnership with Avert is important because networks of people living with HIV have an important role to play in speaking up for the health and rights of their constituents – and to do this well, we need to be well-informed and equipped with the most recent with data, the latest thinking, developments, strategies and tools relating to HIV.
The Global Network of People Living with HIV (GNP+) is a network for people living with HIV, run by people living with HIV. GNP+ meaningfully engages and supports national and regional networks of people living with HIV across the world.
