SUM II Project, Indonesia
SUM stands for Scaling Up of MARPs participation. APMG is working in a consortium led by TRG Inc (Training Resources Group). Other members of the consortium include RTI International and the Burnet Institute.
SUM II provides funding and technical support to civil society groups (non-government and community-based organisations) so that they can participate better in the response to HIV and district level in Indonesia. The main aim is to ensure that the people and communities most affected by HIV and most at-risk of acquiring HIV get access to the range of programs and services they need to avoid acquiring HIV if they do not have it, or can live a full, health and productive life if they are living with HIV.
APMG’s primary role in SUM II is to provide technical assistance in the areas of:
- Mapping districts to establish priorities for engaging people from the most at-risk populations
- Assisting emerging CBOs and NGOs that are focussed on or led by people from most at-risk populations to develop the range of services and programs that their population needs
- Developing, testing and promoting models that help districts to reach enough people from most at-risk populations to have a significant impact on the epidemic
