Appreciating Assets

CONTRIBUTION OF RELIGION TO UNIVERSAL ACCESS IN AFRICA
Appreciating assets: the contribution of religion to universal access in Africa
The World Health Organization awarded ARHAP a one year grant to map religious health assets in Zambia and Lesotho in support of its Universal Access Initiative for HIV/AIDS (2005-2006). The objective was to identify, assess, and map the assets of religious communities that can accelerate Universal Access to HIV/AIDS treatment, care and prevention services, while developing an in-depth understanding of how these RHAs function and how they relate to each other. The methodology included GIS mapping and Participatory Inquiry (for which the ARHAP toolset PIRHANA was developed).
