Given the broad interest that has been expressed in getting involved in the SASH Programme, we have created a new form of affiliation called a ‘SASH Associate’. The SASH Associate category is intended for those interested in joining in on Programme activities in a more intensive fashion by actively contributing to one or more components of the Programme. Associates might, for example:
- Offer to integrate and co-supervise SASH Fellows as researchers on an existing research project they are involved in that is related to our GAP themes
- Enable the participation of SASH Fellows, Members or staff in an ongoing policy process or debate that they are involved in
- Offer training on a specific topic (of particular interest would be ‘training the trainer’ type training that would build broader capacity)
- Host a workshop or writing retreat on a particular topic of interest to the Programme.
- Offer to help with one of the ongoing research projects within the SASH Programme or Division of Social and Behavioural Sciences.
SASH Associates are not limited to those working or studying at UCT. We are interested in working with people engaged in some way with HIV social science research in South Africa and would welcome Associate Members who are researchers, teachers, activists, community members, or those working in civil society or government.
In return for their contribution to the Programme, Associates and their projects would be featured on our website and elsewhere as key participants in SASH, and would receive preferential access to Programme events and resources, including access to financial support for their proposed activities.
To apply to be an Associate member, please write a brief proposal of some specific ways in which you might get involved with the SASH Programme. Please be specific about what you could bring to the Programme as well as what kind of support the Programme could offer you and your project. Engagement as an Associate Member doesn’t necessarily require active or constant involvement over that two-year period but we are interested in supporting initiatives that involve more than once-off activities.
