info4africa facilitates forums that encourage contact, communication and collaboration within and across the health and welfare community of practice. These face-to-face forums are attended by HIV-related practitioners, researchers, community workers, faith leaders, as well as a variety of organisations in each of the sectors (education, public, private, non-government, faith-based and community-based). Quarterly forums are held with youth from participating schools in KwaZulu-Natal.
Our forums create a context for people and organisations to network and build contacts outside of their usual networks, raise knowledge levels around health and welfare issues, expose people to relevant and timely updates in HIV and AIDS policy and practice and create dialogue between groups that don’t normally come in contact with each other. info4africa currently collaborates with a number of organisations so as to run the various forums as cost effectively as possible. These partnerships also ensure that the forums are advertised to as wide a network of service providers in health and welfare as possible maximizing attendance and networking potential. Current forum partners include: Medical Research Council (MRC), World Conference on Religion and Peace (WCRP) and the National Social Welfare Forum (NSWF). Forums are free or low cost.
