Sport is increasingly being recognised for the contribution it can make to the Millennium Development Goals and the response to the HIV / AIDS pandemic. This recognition of the value of sport led to the instigation of a number of non-governmental organisations (NGOs) in Zambia, and in other parts of world, that deliver combined programmes of sport and life skills education that contribute to the broader efforts of civil society organisations to address HIV / AIDS.

The purpose of this research was to examine the nature of partnership relations that included NGOs using sport as a tool for HIV / AIDS prevention in Zambia. Precise objectives of the research were:

  • To examine the relationships between sport-for-development NGOs, national and international agencies involved in addressing HIV / AIDS.
  • To examine the relationships amongst sport-for-development NGOs themselves and between these organisations and other health-based NGOs.
  • To identify factors that support or constrain partnership working among sport-for-development NGOs and other agencies involved in addressing HIV / AIDS.
  • To investigate the contribution of sport-for-development NGOs to partnerships aimed at enhancing co-ordination of HIV / AIDS policy and delivery.
