Increased self-acceptance and self-efficacy among LGBT+ people – unleashing their potential to act in their own interests and those of others.
Improved Health Outcomes
Better service uptake and health outcomes among PLHIV, men who have sex with men (MSM), and transgender people – as a consequence of improved personal efficacy and a greater sense of community - and self-worth.
Through PV’s LILO processes and various capacity-building interventions focusing on the individual, there have been changes in awareness, beliefs, attitudes and values.
Appreciation of Diversity
Improvements in relations between the diverse groups that make up many LGBT+ organisations – i.e. more acceptance and appreciation of diversity within the organisations and the movement.
Stronger, more effective and efficient LGBT+ organisations in our regions.
Dialogues have contributed to changes in public behaviour.
The development of stronger leaders in the PLHIV, LGBT+, sex workers’ and adolscent girls & young women's movements.
Complexity of Identities
A more nuanced awareness of the complexity of identities, of intersectionality, and of the multi-layered nature of oppression and power.
Development of trusted messengers and champions, increased media coverage and informal ‘watchdog’ functions.
Individuals making conscious, educated and responsible choices about disclosing (or not) their status or identities in their families and social contexts.
At regional and national intermediary organisation-level PV has contributed to more positive attitudes towards MSM, transgender people, sex workers, PLHIV, and adolescent girls & young women, significant shifts in organisational strategy and more equitable and effective relations with their partner organisations at community level.
Improved Human Rights
Improved recognition of human rights and SRHR of the LGBT+ communities across Africa, The Middle East and Asia.
