STEP 2: SUBMIT YOUR PROPOSAL

We are seeking proposals to develop and lead thematic sessions during the first two days of HIV2020. We will accept proposals for half- and full-day programs in line with the key thematic areas and principles of the conference, including: affinity (day 1) and intersectionality (day 2).   

Proposals are welcomed from: key population-led organisations and networks; community advocates; researchers; service providers; healthcare providers; program implementers; and other stakeholders who are supported by an organization, institution, or network.  

We are also seeking proposals from artists who are interested in holding an exhibition and performers who are interested in arranging an artistic performance programme during HIV2020. 

GUIDELINES FOR SUBMITTING EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST

HIV2020 is accepting proposals from key population-led networks and organizations, community-led networks and organizations, social and healthcare agencies, research institutions or universities and other allied organizations interested in developing and leading, half- and full-day programs during Day 1 (affinity) and Day 2 (intersectionality) of HIV2020. Proposals from individual community advocates, service providers, healthcare professionals, researchers, funders, or policy makers are welcome but must have backing from an organization, institution, or network.  

 

HIV2020 is also accepting proposals from artists and performers on the conference themes of affinity, intersectionality and solidarity that must also align with the values and principles of the conference.  

 

Proposals must be aligned with the conference themes, the overarching theme of the day, and the values and principles of the conference.  

 

Guidelines for submission of proposals for Day 1:

Day 1 (5 July 2020) will provide opportunities for affinity –full- and half-day thematic caucuses and spaces for populations or professional groups to gather, to organize, and to have ‘in-house’ discussions. The Global networks organizing HIV2020 (GNP+, INPUD, MPact, and NSWP) will organise full-day convenings for their communities on Day 1. All proposals for Day 1 should be in line with the overarching theme of the day: Affinity.   For example: a full-day program for treatment activists.

 

Guidelines for submission of proposals on Day 2:  

Day 2 (6 July 2020) will underscore intersectionality in the HIV response and will be organized as a series of concurrently-run, full- and half-day scientific and thematic sessions and workshops. These will provide an opportunity to examine the success of flagship community-led programs. Therefore, submissions should include programs for a full-day or half-day rather than shorter single issue sessions (see below). Organisations and networks submitting a proposal for Day 2 should propose a program in line with the overarching theme of the day: Intersectionality.  

 

Proposals should be thematic and specify how the program will be intersectional (involving multiple overlapping key populations) and how it will involve participants with diverse experiences and expertise.  

 

For example: a full-day program on the theme of challenging criminalization where participants from multiple key populations and contexts share their experience and expertise.

 

Programs will last half a day (4 hours including a 30-minute break) or a full day (9 hours including two 30-minute breaks and 60 minutes for lunch). They can be organized as meetings, learning exchanges, workshops, panel discussions, performances, film screenings, and/or presentations. The HIV2020 organizers encourage participatory and interactive formats.

HIV2020 organizers will accept proposals in English, French, Portuguese, Spanish or Russian.

Program proposals should also:

    • 1. Unfinished business in the HIV response, including unacceptably high HIV incidence and prevalence among gay and bisexual men, people who use drugs, sex workers, and transgender people;

    • 2. Ending the stigma, discrimination, violence and criminalization faced by these key populations, as well as all people living with HIV;

    • 3. Improving access to high-quality and tailored HIV treatment and health services for all;

    • 4. Challenging the silencing and lack of meaningful involvement of all affected communities;

    • 5. Increasing funding for, and investment in, community- and key population-led responses to HIV domestically and internationally

    • 6. Working intersectionally and respecting diversity within our communities; and

    • 7. Linking HIV with broader health, social justice and human rights movements.

  • Specify the intended day for your program and describe how it fits into the theme of Affinity or Intersectionality. The program for Day 3 will be decided upon based on the proposals received and will draw from the content presented on the first two days.

  • Include contact information for program leads and all presenters/facilitators, with names, affiliations and email addresses. Please note that all presenters/facilitators should register to HIV2020 as well as submitting proposals.

PROPOSAL REVIEW CRITERIA

Only proposals aligned with the themes, values and principles of HIV2020 will be considered. The HIV2020 Program Working Group will give preference to proposals that are innovative, interactive, participatory, and/or advance knowledge in support of the global HIV response and other related social justice movements.  

 

The HIV2020 Program Working Group — working with volunteer reviewers— will review all proposals and make final selections. The Program Working Group currently has language capacity in English and Spanish. Reviewers will initially use online services to translate proposals in French, Portuguese and Russian if reviewers cannot be identified to assist with those languages.  

 

The HIV2020 Program Working Group will strive for balanced and diverse program content. We may offer applicants feedback designed to strengthen proposals and balance the overall program at HIV2020. This may include linking different applicants for peer exchange and support.  

 

Selected proposals are not guaranteed financial support. All proposed participants in the program are encouraged to secure funding to participate in HIV2020 and to organize and coordinate their proposed program. The organizers of HIV2020 are fundraising to make as many scholarships available as possible.
