On 7-10 December 2017 module 5 of the STEP-UP Training Academy took place in Warsaw. This was the last module of the very successful 2017 programme. At the graduation activists from Netherlands, Belgium, Italy, France, Malta, Turkey, Poland, Ireland, Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan received their certificate from EATG Executive Director Koen Block. Even though the 2017 programme has finished, we believe that this is not the end but just the beginning: We look forward to working with these aspiring activists in the future to improve the lives of people living with HIV in the WHO Europe region!
Providing STEP-UP graduates with the possibility to apply for a micro-grant for their local HIV, HCB or TB projects has been a tradition for the course. A number of excellent projects have already been implemented, and you can read more about the program and the results on the EATG Training Academy website.
