The CRAT is a program of Via Libre (based in Lima, Peru), in partnership with Alliance (based in Brighton, United Kingdom)

The technical assistance that we provide is focused on the development of local capacities for organizational change.  With this purpose, we do not only attach importance to the outputs of the technical assistance, such as reports, tools or systems, but we also believe that the main task is to generate appropriate conditions for the growth and development of the organizations.

Alliance Regional Technical Assistance Centers

The International HIV/AIDS Alliance as an international non-governmental organization, has an excellent work record in numerous countries and a growing international profile. Through its global activities it has performed a relevant role in the global response to the HIV epidemic.

In 2008, the International HIV/AIDS Alliance, decided to decentralize the technical assistance services through Regional Hubs around the world. They were created with a significant investment and the full support from the Secretariat of International HIV/AIDS Alliance, and they are committed to promoting the provision of technical assistance with a quality approach to internal and external organizations.

Thus, the CRATs –Technical Support Hubs- were created with technical staff in charge of a portfolio of consultants/experts of the region, to provide technical assistance services to the Alliance Linking Organizations and also to any other institution that could require so.

To date, the CRATs are managed by organizations that are members of International HIV/AIDS Alliance, in charge of supporting hundreds of based-community organizations in more than 40 countries.

They are located around the world and are incorporated in by the following Linking Organizations:
