    The Pehchan Training Curriculum supports Community Systems Strengthening (CSS) for MSM, transgender and hijra organisations. It was developed by community experts in India and is one of the first comprehensive CSS curricula for vulnerable sexual minorities working in the HIV response.


    About Pehchan: Pehchan is a five-year programme supported by the Global Fund that strengthens and builds the capacity of 201 community-based organizations (CBOs) in 17 states of India to advance HIV prevention. Implemented by a consortium led by India HIV/AIDS Alliance and six sub-recipient partners (Humsafar Trust; Sangama; Pehchan North Region Office: SAATHII; Alliance India Andhra Pradesh; and SIAAP), Pehchan collaborates with India’s Department of AIDS Control and will reach as many as 450,000 MSM, transgenders and hijras by 2015. It remains the Global Fund’s largest single-country grant to date focused on the HIV response for vulnerable sexual minorities.


    Pehchan provides a range of technical support and capacity building, including training to build necessary competencies among CBO staff. The Pehchan training curriculum has been developed to ensure that CBO staff understand organisational issues and are able to address ongoing challenges of programme implementation. While these modules have been developed for use in India, they can be adapted for different cultural contexts.

    Pehchan celebrates this milestone and our partners and community members who contributed to this remarkable resource. Special thanks to the Global Fund and the Department of AIDS Control for their support.
