Meaningful involvement of people with HIV/AIDS (MIPA) is about ensuring that the communities most affected by HIV are involved in decision-making, at every level of the response. MIPA requires dedication, planning and assessment, organizational buy-in, and a champion to help usher its development and continued assessment.
This new resource from AIDS United and The US People Living with HIV Caucus shares best practices to incorporate MIPA into your organization, including how MIPA benefits CBOs, tools to assess MIPA at your organization, and mechanisms for greater involvement of people living with HIV.
This work takes time but the investment in MIPA is critical, doable, and well worth the effort.
