Summary

This guide describes Community ChoiceWork, an approach to directly involving citizens in issues that affect them (in this case, HIV/AIDS). It is intended help citizens frame and deliberate on an issue of concern that has no clear solution. After explaining what Community ChoiceWork is, the guide discusses what it has to do with HIV/AIDS. Next, it presents the Community ChoiceWork process in a step-by-step manner: (1) "Getting Started" (agreeing on the intended goal and ensuring group commitment); (2) "Stakeholder Analysis Month One" (e.g., identifying major stakeholders and selecting members for the ChoiceWork committee); (3) "Mapping and Naming the Problem and Framing Choices" (e.g., grouping like concerns and perspectives, listing actions, and naming the problem); (4) "Finalize the Framework Month Three" (testing the framework and writing a title and writing the discussion guide); (5) "Deliberating and Setting Direction Month Four" (coordinating and moderating public forums and setting direction in public forums); (6) "Reporting Back Month Five" (taking notes during forums and compiling reports from all forums); (7) "Creating an Action Plan Month Six" (community mobilization, community priority setting, and advocacy campaigns); and (8) "Taking Action." An appendix presents illustrative discussion guides. (Contains 29 references.) (SM)
