The CoPE project is a funding mechanism that enables the production and translation of patient education materials, brochures and other resources related to HIV/AIDS & co-infections in multiple languages. The project aims at empowering people living with HIV/AIDS and their advocates by providing access to the latest information about HIV/AIDS and co-infections in their local language. Being able to refer to up-to-date and reliable information adapted to the local situation is essential in the dialogue with clinicians, health administrators and policy makers.
Any community-based organisation in the European and Central Asian region dealing with prevention and treatment of HIV/AIDS and co-infections can apply to CoPE.
The production and printing of materials is coordinated by the local community organization that has received the CoPE grant. The resource is then distributed through different channels, nationally, regionally and locally, e.g., to hospitals and maternity services, NGOs, Opioid Substitution Therapy services, libraries, government agencies, HIV screening centres and clinics and prisons.
