The HIV and AIDS response, and in particular the channelling of state resources to civil society in Mexico, has been an emblematic case of good practices on multisectoral work that has inspired similar models in the region and the world for decades. At present, the government has decided on a different approach to the response to the epidemic, which led Mexican civil society to organize in a National Movement to reverse these changes.

This case study focuses on describing the creation and evolution of the joint work programme and the achievements and lessons learned.
