Governance and HIV: Government - Civil Society Interface: An Aspect of Governance Critical to an Effective Response
UNDP Regional Project on HIV and Development
UNDP, n/d, 64 pp

"There exists a dynamic inter-relationship between good governance, a successful government organisation (GO) - civil society organisation (CSO) interface, and an appropriate response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Good governance creates an environment that promotes collaboration among various sectors of society. Appropriate responses to the epidemic, on the other hand, are engendered by positive interfaces and cooperation among key sectors of a community. This case study specifically examines three examples of interface: the Philippine National AIDS Council (PNAC) at the national level; and Olongapo City and the province of Palawan at the local level. The study also looks into another interface which it considers crucial to the success of the HIV/AIDS response - the interface between Pinoy Plus, the sole organisation of people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) in the Philippines, and GOs and NGOs."
