  Our Partners  

During 2006, AMICAALL Burkina Faso continued its efforts to expand partnerships with organisations working in the country, and identified specific areas for collaboration aimed at enhancing municipal-based responses to HIV. A dialogue has been initiated with the Netherlands Development Organisation (SNV) and the German Technical Cooperation (GTZ). Some highlights:

The National AIDS Programme/Committee - provided US$50,000 to support programme activities, and is working with AMICAALL Burkina Faso to enhance monitoring and evaluation at the local level that can feed into the national response to HIV.
UNDP, UNAIDS, UNICEF and the World Bank – partnership and resource mobilisation activities have been undertaken and collaboration is being expanded.
SNV and GTZ - discussions underway on possible collaboration and partnership.
