What we do
We’re leading innovative health and human rights projects that address the needs of men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgender people in Asia and the Pacific.
- Assessing of key organisational and programme areas
- Identifying organisational gaps for technical support
- Assisting networks in strengthening their advocacy
- Making strategic information available for communities
Inclusive capacity building system packed with a set of essential features for strengthening organisational capacity
We work to improve and build on an organisation’s existing management and advocacy, while encouraging leadership for a community-led HIV response.
JumpStart is an inclusive system consisting of essential features for strengthening the organizational capacity of MSM and transgender networks across Southeast Asia and the Pacific. The project serves as a catalyst for regional, sub-regional and national networks to explore core competencies that they can build on and, at the same time, to explore skill development the networks may devote to.
JumpStart condenses a variety of supports and instruments to assess, and therefore, improve the networks’s policy analysis and strategic information development. It consists of:
Assessing of key organisational and programme areas
Identifying organisational gaps for technical support
Assisting networks in strengthening their advocacy
Making strategic information available for communities
JumpStart has also translated various advocacy materials into eleven local languages to assist in communities’ analysis and interpretation of useful data and to increase their service uptake throughout the region. The project has currently assisted 13 community organisations throughout the region.
