HIV & SRHR
The Action Project (2010-2013)
Funded by the European Commission, the Action Project supports community mobilisation and advocacy. Its overall objective is to improve the sexual and reproductive health (SRH) and rights of young people in South Asia through programming efforts in India and Bangladesh. It focuses particularly on the most marginalised young people—MSM, transgenders, drug users, sex workers and those living with HIV—and endeavours to strengthen and empower civil society organisations and youth groups to advocate for more responsive policies addressing the SRH and rights of young people. In India, the project is being implemented in partnership with MAMTA and SASO.

In project-supported youth groups, young people receive life skills and SRHR-related information during peer-led sessions mobilised to develop advocacy skills. By 2013, the Action Project will have contributed to shaping SRH and rights policies and their implementation in India and Bangladesh by supporting the meaningful participation of young people in relevant processes and programmes.
Koshish (2011-2014)
Koshish a European Commission-funded programme, strengthens civil society organisations and networks— specifically those representing and working with PLHIV and other marginalised groups like MSM, transgenders, sex workers, and people who use drugs—to effectively advocate for policies and strategies on sexual and reproductive health (SRH) and rights for PLHIV in India. Through coalitions, partner organisations develop and implement state and district-level efforts, affirming the principles of empowerment and meaningful partnerships as core elements of effective advocacy.

Increased capacity and advocacy supported through Koshish will support the realisation of rights of PLHIV and help address dynamics that limit PLHIV access to SRH interventions. Alliance India leads this project in partnership with MAMTA, PWDS, VMM and CHETNA, along with state-level networks for PLHIV in Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Gujarat.
