3415.0 Community Partnerships: Lessons Learned

Monday, November 5, 2007: 4:30 PM
To implement successful HIV/AIDS programs, establishing and maintaining community partnerships is critical. Another key component is the availability of financial resources to sustain the programs. In this session, participants will learn about how collaborative endeavors between financial institutions and the community have been developed along with the challenges of developing these partnerships. The focus of the first presentation will be the collaboration between microfinance and HIV prevention. In presentation two, the presenter will discuss an innovative, privately-funded collaboration between large and small, tribal and non-tribal agencies targeting settled and migrant Native American women and families. The focus of the third presentation is the results obtained from a case study in which two planning groups were able to come together; noting the challenges of this accomplishment. In the final presentation, the presenter will discuss how community members partnered together successfully with researchers to identify a health issue affecting their children.
Session Objectives: 1. Describe factors associated with positive partnerships between researchers and community stake holders. 2. Discuss challenges to developing and implementing intervention programs among tribe-based settings. 3. Articulate funding issues with the development and implementation prevention programs.
