The programme
The PITCH programme (2016 – 2020) is one of the strategic partnerships within the framework of   Dialogue and Dissent of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. An in-country capacity building programme for lobby and advocacy with a strong policy component at national, regional and global level in joint cooperation with other stakeholders, such as  SAA, RCNF and FSP.  The common strategic goal is “to beat the AIDS epidemic in countries that are most affected by HIV”, with a focus on key populations and adolescent girls & young women. The programme is implemented in nine countries. In these countries the aim is to:

  • Promote decriminalisation, particularly in relation to key populations (KPs);
  • Build new coalitions and bring local evidence to the global policy level.

PITCH offers the opportunity to strengthen, connect, upscale, and innovate existing programmatic and policy work that is being done with partners at different levels.
