Working Groups

Working Groups

Working groups are thematic interest groups, established and chaired by members. They are vibrant spaces where members debate current practice, share good practice, experiences and challenges. They also provide an opportunity for members to stimulate new thinking, write policy positions and plan joint advocacy work. Membership of the groups is open to all STOPAIDS members.

Our current groups include:
