**PLEASE NOTE THIS CONSULTATION HAS NOW CLOSED** UNICEF Communication for Development is seeking comment on draft documents outlining proposed minimum standards for community engagement and indicators for measurement for development and humanitarian practice. The ‘Development of Minimum Quality Standards and Indicators for Community Engagement Project’ emerges from a growing consensus on the need for improved evaluation and measurement of the impacts of community engagement, particularly in the wake of lessons learned during the 2014 – 16 Ebola Outbreak in West Africa. Through a wide-ranging consultative process, and building on current practice and evidence, UNICEF is currently developing a framework for community engagement that will support implementation of high quality, evidence-based community engagement in the development and humanitarian sector.

From 18th to 22nd July 18 000 healthcare professionals, policy makers and social entrepreneurs will convene in Durban, South Africa for AIDS 2016, the 21st annual International AIDS conference. Themed ‘Access Equity Rights Now’, the conference will be focused on providing care to and engage with communities of marginalised people; left behind in the race to provide ART - sex workers, men who have sex with men, young people, and transgender people. Issues such as tackling stigma and discrimination and providing support for people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) will be a priority at the conference and this group will serve as a location to host further discussion around some of the topics that feature.
