The Denver Principles Empowerment Index

The Sero Project’s Denver Principles Empowerment Index will be a quantifiable measure of not-for-profit AIDS service providers’ adherence to and fulfillment of self-empowerment ideals in their delivery of services, governance, development of program and policy, advocacy and provision of HIV treatment information.

The Empowerment Index is designed to achieve several important goals:

  • Improve health outcomes for people with HIV.
  • Incrementally evolve not-for-profit HIV social service delivery from a traditional benefactor/victim model to one that is more partnership-based, focused on empowering the clients served.
  • Increase client participation in civic and political processes.
