Portrait of an African community responding to AIDS

'Portrait of an African community responding to AIDS' tells the story of a remarkable community organisation in Tanzania, the Faraja Trust Fund. Anyone interested in how communities respond to the challenges brought about by HIV and AIDS will find this report of interest. The report reflects on the relatively undocumented role of civil society organisations and their success. The story is also about the efforts of external funders to assist in alleviating problems that are deeply embedded at the community level. The study, commissioned by the Ford Foundation’s East Africa office, raises questions about what constitutes viable and sustainable community HIV/AIDS responses and how these can be best supported.
