Once people discover their own strengths, they often want to change their situation right away. Facilitators of the Constellation can accompany change with the Community Life Competence Process. Communities' progress can be structured according to 10 practices* on HIV and on malaria.
To know more about the progress of communities that use the Community Life Competence Process, click on one of the practices.
Progress on HIV
1. Acknowledgement and recognition
"The outcomes are based on locally validated community self-assessments by seven communities from North Eastern Thailand." UNAIDS evaluation, 2005
Progress on malaria
1. Acknowledgement and Recognition of malaria as a disease.
4. Severe malaria
In 2008, the Swiss Red Cross measured the impact of the Malaria Competence approach and of the use of the Self Assessment tool in the Central Region in Togo. To do this, they compared the results of communities supported by the Red Cross and who had carried out a Self Assessment (Group 1), with those who had received no support from the Red Cross (Group 2).
The Community Life Competence Process has been evaluated several times. The WHO-UNICEF evaluation of AIDS Competence in Papua New Guinea (2009) concludes: “The AIDS Competence Process is an effective approach in combating HIV/AIDS through local empowerment and should be continued and expanded."
