The Solidarity Action Network (SANE) brings together international civil society organisations (ICSOs) and their local partners to support each other when faced with undue threats to their operations. It enhances cooperative mechanisms for joint actions beyond public statements of solidarity to push back against clampdowns on civil society.

Solidarity Playbook – a Collection of Best Practices

We collect best practices and learnings on resilience and solidarity mechanisms developed by ICSOs and their CSO partners. We do this by capturing case studies and curating learnings and knowledge on organisational resilience mechanisms as well as coalition responses. We derive key findings and mechanisms out of this process. We take these steps to improve ICSOs’ and CSOs’ own preparedness to undue scrutiny and attacks.

The Legal Toolkit was created primarily as a go-to resource for lawyers representing people living with HIV who are facing criminal prosecution based on HIV status. However, other advocates are likely to find the Legal Toolkit useful. The Toolkit includes charts, articles, guidance, case law, legal analysis, scientific data and citations to empirical studies on the impact of HIV criminalization on individuals affected by HIV. The Toolkit pulls together into one place a wealth of information, both quick-reference resources (e.g. a Chart on the Relative Risk of HIV and other STIs) and links to longer reference materials (e.g. sample briefs) that are located, along with a summary of each document, in CHLP’s online HIV Policy Resource Bank.
