Announcement
Community Update

22 November 2019
Dear community members,

Thank you for your support as we relaunch the Children and AIDS Learning Collaborative. We are pleased to let you know all further communications will be through MailChimp. We will be closing our Knowledge Gateway platform. Please ensure you continue to receive our emails by checking your inbox and spam folders for a message with the subject, "Community Update: Spam filter for emails".

Please mark the message as 'Not Spam/Move to Inbox' and reach out to us at childrenandaids@unicef.org<mailto:childrenandaids@unicef.org> if you have not received this message.

In our recent survey to community members, 91 per cent noted that the community of practice provides them with new information relevant to their work. When ranking components, 100 per cent of participants noted sharing recent research, summaries from major conferences/ meetings and webinars as an important function. We will continue to make sure these are prioritized by sharing a quarterly newsletter that compiles conference news, research and webinars across the quarter.

Many participants asked for an online discussion forum with opportunities to ask questions and network with each other. We will be exploring possibilities for such a platform in the next few months. In the meantime, please email Rikke Le Kirkegaard (rlekirkegaard@unicef.org<mailto:rlekirkegaard@unicef.org>) to share webinar invites, links to your resources and other materials with the community. A compilation of such updates will be shared with the Children and AIDS Learning Collaborative regularly.

Once again, thank you for your participation. Please let us know if you do not receive an email through Mailchimp today and looking forward to our continued collaboration to end AIDS in children everywhere.

Overview: The session will review the status of Africa's response to the crisis of HIV among adolescent girls and young women, through the eyes of African elders, major institutions on the frontlines of the response and adolescent girls and young women themselves. Our objective in this session is to catalyse momentum in the HIV response for this important population, by showcasing home-grown solutions and discussing how a broad range of partnerships can turn the tide of the epidemic for Africa's daughters.

When: Thursday, 5 Dec 2019
12:45 - 14:15
Where: MH1, Kigali Convention Centre



Overview: The world is failing to reach all - or even most - of the millions of infants, children and adolescents living with HIV with effective, lifesaving treatment, thus depriving them of the fullest opportunity possible to survive and thrive. During this ICASA session, UNICEF and partners will launch a new paediatric service delivery framework and explore optimal, evidence-informed best practices to close the gap in terms of testing, treating and retention of children in lifelong HIV care.

When: Friday, 6 Dec 2019
14:45 - 16:15
Where: MH3, Kigali Convention Centre



Overview: Achieving elimination of mother-to- child transmission (EMTCT) of HIV and syphilis demands intensified action and data-driven, tailored approaches and innovations that are adapted to a country's specific epidemiolocal, political and socio-cultural context. Join UNICEF and partners as we launch a programme guide based on the latest scientific research and programmatic evidence that will address key considerations for programming in support of countries going the "last mile" to EMTCT.
