The Advocacy Accelerator (AAC) actively responds to the advocacy capacity needs of local actors in the development advocacy ecosystem, including health, in Africa. Our Flagship Programmes are a direct result of the community’s responses to our annual survey and the many AAC-hosted conversations, both in-person and online. We have acted by creating value-based programmes that approach advocacy from a perspective of intersectionality and inclusion.
In response to the changing times, the Advocacy Accelerator (AAC) has adapted our Flagship Programmes from in-person to blended and fully online training courses designed to strengthen and increase the effectiveness of local advocacy efforts. To foster greater alignment and collaboration between individual advocates, advocacy organisations, and advocacy technical assistance providers on the continent, our training includes peer learning and opportunities for coaching and mentoring.

We are constantly adding new trainings to our portfolio to strengthen the advocacy capacity of individual advocates, as well as the ability of advocacy organisations on the continent to determine locally driven advocacy agendas. Look out for our new Flagship Programmes in 2022, to include Knowledge Management for Advocacy and Advocacy Communications.
As well as our Flagship Programmes, we also design bespoke linking and learning platforms for particular groups that may wish to have the AAC create and deliver personalized training to meet particular advocacy needs. These linking and learning platforms comprise a safe and inclusive virtual space for advocates to learn, innovate and share experiences, expertise, data, and processes.
If you are interested in personalised programmes for particular groups or in joining the next session of any of our Flagship Programmes, please contact [email protected].
