HIV/AIDS was initially conceived as an internal Save the Children Sweden regional training for Eastern and Central Africa. When we realized how many organizations in Africa are working from this perspective, we decided to make it external and Pan African. The fact that 147 people from eight African, one Latin American and three European countries, representing a wide variety of national and international NGOs, UN agencies and government institutions, chose to participate, proves that the interest in exploring this relatively new approach to gender, violence and HIV/AIDS is considerable. We hope that this seminar will spark off new initiatives, and we aim, through e-mail contacts, to foster a forum for discussion, and possible collaboration, on methods, experiences and research which will be sustained after the seminar.
