Goal

To contribute to the Fast-Track strategy of ending the AIDS epidemic as a public health threat by 2030

Purpose

To bring FIMA leaders, religious leaders, Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) leaders, Government leaders, and leaders in academia and science together, in a coordinated way, as a "Think tank" to share experiences, discuss contemporary issues and develop an action plan regarding enhancing interreligious cooperation to increase quality religiosity and its use, by individuals and communities, to fast-track the response for Prevention, Treatment, Care, Support and Control of HIV/AIDS and HIV-risk addictions. The intention is to get the best ideas out of the brains of the FIMA Family and their partners on the theme, mainly through brainstorming and encourage them to make use of the outcome in practice and follow it up to achieve the goal.

General Objective

To identify and document what FIMA and its partners will do differently and follow up as priorities to enhance interreligious cooperation and to increase quality religiosity and its use, by individuals and communities, to fast-track the response for Prevention, Treatment, Care, Support and Control of HIV/AIDS and HIV-risk addictions.

Expected Output

A priority action plan including the following: What is to be done ? Who is to do it? How is it to be done? How will it be monitored? In summary, over the next 10 years, what will we do as priorities? How will we achieve the desired results? What will be different in 2030? How shall we get to where we want to go? As far as the theme is concerned: What right things are we doing, in the right way and at the right time which we need to increase? What right things are we doing in the wrong way and at the wrong time which we need to do differently? What wrong things are we doing in the right way and need to be changed? What wrong things are we doing wrongly and need to be discarded? What right things are we not doing and we should start doing?
