(i)Top Priority HIV/AIDS Advocacy Issues

SANASO undertook a Needs Assessment Survey in 1998 to identify HIV/AIDS issues that require advocacy interventions at Regional level. Results of the Survey were further validated through in-depth country-level situational analysis involving group discussions with communities to hear the voices of people from the grassroots. Findings of these surveys were presented at SANASO Regional Advocacy Meeting held in September 2000 where consensus was reached on three cross-cutting top priority areas for Regional advocacy as follows:
