Organization Description:
The Panos Global AIDS Programme (GAP) is a network programme of seven independent autonomous Panos Institutes which work in North America, Caribbean, Europe, Central, Eastern, Southern and West Africa and South Asia. Panos GAP has an unparalleled record in raising awareness of, promoting discussion around, and stimulating a response to the social causes and consequences of the AIDS epidemic, particularly as it affects the developing world.The Panos AIDS Programme has provided significant inputs in approaches such as : UNAIDS Communications Framework for HIV and AIDS (1999); the work of the Rockefeller Foundation Communication for Social Change (CSC) network and the allied work of the Communication Initiative (, and more recently in the first World Congress on Communication for Development in October 2006. We work with a number of partners to strengthen the theoretical basis of HIV communication approaches that adequately address social context and the complexity of social change, and also seek to address some of the barriers to practical implementation. Panos GAP also promotes debate and reflection among communication practitioners and broker linkages with those responsible for funding and developing HIV programming, to ensure that inclusive communication approaches inform and are mainstreamed into programmes and projects on the ground.
Through its twenty years of work with the media each Panos office is recognised in its region for its training and high standards of its media outputs. This work with the media has also helped us to understand the needs of the media to enhance the coverage of development issues, challenges posed by the changing media environments and some ways of overcoming these challenges. Panos GAP uses this understanding of the media as a profession and independent sector to promote debate and dialogue on crucial HIV and AIDS issues, in particular through working to strengthen the capacity of journalists.

TB Care Delivery:
Panos is one of the world’s leading ‘communication for development’ (C4D) organisations and has proven and long-standing expertise in oral testimonies and other participatory communication techniques, media development, and information and communication technologies (ICTs).Panos GAP has used its understanding of communication to ensure that incisive and independent analysis of the Global Plan to Stop TB as well as TB projects in selected countries in Africa, Caribbean and South Asia are easily accessible, and easily understood by all stakeholders including the most marginalised, and that these outputs are sensitively placed into discussions with key decision makers, leading to an increased informed debate and dialogue on the successes and ways to overcome some challenges among various stakeholders.
Additionally, Panos GAP has employed its understanding of the wide opportunities and challenges offered by the transformation of the media and communication environment in the recent decade to help key stakeholders of the TB prevention and control programme (globally and nationally)develop new communication approaches and devise newer ways of engaging with the media both at the global as well as the national levels. Panos GAP has also used its in-depth understanding of the media and knowledge of working with the media and civil society to facilitate interactions and strengthen contact between the media and the key stakeholders of the TB prevention and Control programme (at the globa, regional and national levels).

Panos Global AIDS Programme highlights the role of communication (including the media) in the fight against TB.
