When AYNLA gathered its members to have nationally coordinated events commemorating the World AIDS Day, AYNLA also became active in the HIV awareness advocacy. Knowing that many nurses are not sensitized and trained to handle clients undergoing HIV testing, counseling & treatment, AYNLA started among its members, to expose them to the HIV Advocacy. This lead AYNLA to partner with other locally initiated HIV groups and national advocacy organizations. AYNLA also joined the

different initiatives set by the Philippine National AIDS Council and started to help the national advocacy by encouraging more nurse members join the advocacy. AYNLA also became a member of the National Youth Commission Youth Organization Registration Program (YORP) in 2010. By becoming a member of YORP, AYNLA becomes a registered youth organization recognized by the Commission and is able to network with different youth organizations that tackle issues of young people in the country. Becoming a YORP member also pave the way for AYNLA to join the 2011 Outstanding Youth Organizations Awards. Civil Society Partnership Since AYNLAs inception, it has been working closely with many civil society organizations including women, youth, and professional organizations. AYNLA partnered with different organizations both in our local chapters and in the national level. AYNLA is a member of the Reproductive Health Advocacy Network which is the national network of advocates working on for the passage of a national legislation providing reproductive & sexual health in the country. One notable localized membership in a coalition called Oriental Negros Children Advocacy Network. This is an example of how AYNLA Local Chapters network with other organizations to advance its vision and mission. International Partnership AYNLA is a member of the World Health OrganizationGlobal Health Workforce Alliance, Global Youth Action Network and the Global Youth Coalition on HIV & AIDS. All of these memberships enabled the Alliance to network with the leaders working on global health issues & advocacy including HIV & AIDS, nursing & global health, health human resource and young peoples initiatives & developments. Also, AYNLA has been working with the Nightingale Initiative for Global Health, an international group of nurse advocates for the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals and to have global access to healthcare by all people. AYNLA collaborated with NIGH in celebrating the 2010 International Year of the Nurse which was also lobbied in the United Nations for its international recognition to the efforts of nurses to bring about global health. AYNLA also became a leading organization that NIGH collaborates especially NIGHs presence in the country. AYNLA was part of the 6th Country Program of the United Nations Populations FundPhilippines and helped UNFPA in achieving its goals in population & development. This year AYNLA leads the Youth Consortium of the 7th Country Program of UNFPA for 2012-2016.

IMPLEMENTED PROJECTS The Alliance has implemented quite a number of notable advocacy projects & programs despite of the fact that it only has very meager fund coming from membership fees & some sponsors.

C. Data Gathering Occasionally, AYNLA conducts Focus-Group Discussions (FGDs) and online surveys to solicit data and or responses from its members on certain issues. a. Profiling this is done through the AYNLA website where an online member will have to input several information about him/her profiling his/her membership to the Alliance. In this way, the Alliance will know how many of its members are under the category of students, registered nurses or advocates. Small-scale profiling is also done through the Local Chapters b. Online Surveys from time-to-time AYNLA would solicit responses from its members through online surveys and forms being submitted directly to their e-mail addresses. In this way, the Alliance gets the direct pulse from its members.

COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT & HUMANITARIAN OPERATIONS A. Kalingang Bayan (Nurses Mission) Kalingang Bayan or KB is the community development program of AYNLA and is widely implemented in all its local chapters. KB was formerly known as Nursing Missions as it is organized and managed by nurses. It differs from Medical Missions because it is focused in health promotion & education while the latter is commonly known to implement curative services like giving of medicines. In 2011, AYNLAs Kalingang Bayan became widely known after it won as an Area Finalist and became a National Finalist of the Ten Accomplished Youth Organizations of the National Youth Commission. Kalingang Bayan piloted its program in the following areas: 1. Manila 2. Pasay 3. Las Pinas 4. Taguig 5. Iloilo 6. Negros Oriental 7. Pampanga 8. Nueva Ecija Each Kalingang Bayan is slightly different from the other since it needs to address the identified health concerns of the specific communities the Local Chapter has adopted. Some of the services being done and has been implemented in KB Missions are: 1. Nursing consultations 2. Vital Signs monitoring 3. Blood sugar monitoring 4. Health education to children 5. Health education to teens 6. Health education to parents/adults 7. Distribution of medicines 8. Assistance to dental services 9. Reproductive & sexual health education/consultation 10. Mental health consultation 11. Basic nutrition services to children 12. Basic disaster training

maternal & child care and a health promotion arena with a festive mood where AYNLA nurses teach about basic hygienic practices to children, promotion of healthy lifestyle and healthy parenting to parents. The LBK bus aimed to deliver health services to geographically isolated and disadvantaged areas targeting pregnant women and children. In 2011 during its first phase of implementation, the LBK bus travelled the following areas: 1. Tarlac (with AYNLA Tarlac) 2. Pangasinan (with AYNLA Pangasinan) 3. Nueva Ecija (with AYNLA Nueva Ecija) 4. Bohol 5. Negros Occidental (with AYNLA Negros Occidental) 6. Bukidnon 7. Davao del Sur (with AYNLA Davao Del Sur) 8. Compostela Valley 9. South Cotabato 10. Maguindanao AYNLA became a vital force of this project because it became the provider of nurses which then became the service providers during the caravans.

ADVOCACY SUPPORT & POLITICAL AFFAIRS Health Policy Reform AYNLA is an active partner in health policy reform initiatives by the government and with civil society organizations. AYNLA after its legal registration under the Securities & Exchange Commission & Professional Regulation Commission joined the National Youth Commissions Youth Organization Registration Program as the first young professional nursing organization to be registered under this program. When AYNLA joined NYC it gave young nurses the chance to participate in youth policy reform focusing on health issues. AYNLA became a potent partner of the Department of Health, during the height of the issue on nurses exploitation & unemployment. AYNLA sat as one of the members of the DOH Ad Hoc Committee on Nursing Issues. The Ad Hoc Committee helped in finding data necessary for the Department clear the issues & to release public statements and or Administrative Orders. AYNLA was the nursing organization that filed the necessary documents sought by the Department of Health from the nurses who complained about the alleged exploitation. AYNLA stood boldly in the media, the hospital administrators and legislators to protect the best interests of its members and all nurses who are exploited. AYNLA is so far the only nursing organization in the country that has a national manifesto of support to the controversial Reproductive Health Bill and joins actively in its activities to call for its passage. Later, AYNLA became part of the National Sectoral Assembly of Youth & Students of the National Anti-Poverty Commission and was elected to be one of the Council Members. Local & National Government Partnerships AYNLA works with different local, provincial and national government agencies and units. Part of AYNLAs mandate is to work with these agencies to make every health programs sustainable.
