Welcome to our new Africa Follow Up blog. This blog presents an exciting communications tool for increasing information sharing and interaction amongst all stakeholders of the 3-year Africa Follow Up project. The blog is intended to serve as a vehicle for sharing immediate outcomes of project activities, from the point of view of the diverse stakeholders involved - including lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people (LGBT), female sex workers, women and girls affected by HIV, service providers, law enforcement and correctional agencies, ministries of justice, etc. from 15 African countries.
Contributions will be posted regularly on this space, addressing a variety of different aspects of the project. These contributions will give a real-time view of the impacts of activities, and provide valuable knowledge sharing between countries of experiences and best practices. We hope that you will be actively engaged by commenting on the posts and the comments of others. Comments will be moderated so please be patient if your comment does not appear immediately. We will aim to have all comments posted in a timely manner.
