The Seven Sisters can help you by addressing issues that need political lobbying and pressure either at the regional or national level. You can recommend ways in which the Seven Sisters support will be useful. The Seven Sisters, through its website, will share information on HIV/AIDS related issues, technical support needs (e.g. skills training etc.), resources and funding sources. The Seven Sisters, in the future, will be developing activities related to gender and sexuality, and GIPA (Greater Involvement of PWHAs). The Seven Sisters are interested to learn from your experiences in incorporating these issues in your work.
