Partnerships involving sports-for-development NGOs and the fight against HIV / AIDS.

E-mail Print

Sport is increasingly being recognised for the contribution it can make to the Millennium Development Goals and the response to the HIV / AIDS pandemic.

This recognition of the value of sport led to the instigation of a number of non-governmental organisations (NGOs) in Zambia, and in other parts of world, that deliver combined programmes of sport and life skills education that contribute to the broader efforts of civil society organisations to address HIV / AIDS.


In Zambia, as in other countries, partnerships have been promoted as a key mechanism to co-ordinate the HIV / AIDS response both within civil society and between civil society, government, the private sector and international donors.

However, while recognising the potential benefits of partnerships in addressing HIV / AIDS, previous research has identified that, in practice, partnerships can be problematic. For example, partnerships have been identified as masking existing power relations between international donors and NGOs (Laird, 2007) and as creating challenges for NGOs in a context where organisations are competing for similar sources of funding (Webb, 2004).
