The Strategies for Hope Trust has released 'Stepping Stones PLUS', a supplement to the 'Stepping Stones' workshop manual originally published in 1995.
'Stepping Stones PLUS' is designed to be used only after the original 'Stepping Stones' workshop manual has been completed. It consists of numerous new exercises for existing sessions, and new sessions to follow the completion of the original workshop. These are designed to promote a whole-community response to the HIV epidemic through appropriate care and support, and the involvement of HIV-positive people in all aspects of programmes.

Prescription for Life: Take Action to Help Children Living with HIV
The vast majority of children living with HIV around the world lack access to HIV testing and treatment. The Ecumenical Advocacy Alliance (EAA), in collaboration with partners around the world, is embarking on a year-long action with governments, pharmaceutical companies and media to improve access to medicines for children with HIV. Children and young people are invited to take action with their school, faith community or family to help make this happen.
An action guide entitled, Prescription for Life, launched on Universal Children’s Day, 20 November 2008 provides information and resources for schools, families, faith groups and communities to empower young people to write letters to pharmaceutical companies and governments to improve testing and treatment for infants and children living with HIV.
To download the guide, please go to http://www.e-alliance.chhttp://community.micahnetwork.org/en/s/hivaids/accessmeds/children/resource/.
