Collaborative Methodology for Public Managers and NGO Leaders:
Implementing Social Change Policy
Waldman and Meador 2011
Abstract This article spotlights a collaborative partnership approach to develop and garner support for Healthy and Smart, a HIV/AIDS prevention curriculum strategy. Focus is purposely placed on an action research methodology based in theory and evidence. The programmatic method is incremental and encompasses a transdisciplinary and culturally appropriate approach. In particular, our method instigates effective social change and public policy by forming collaborative partnerships. The essence of collaborative partnerships with key public policy and administrative actors is its alignment with a nation‘s social development policy position. Critical to the development of a comprehensive action research approach is investing time to explore each social factor fully. Healthy and Smart HIV/AIDS Prevention Program for Youth exemplifies a participatory program development model for public managers.
To Love Children Educational Foundation International Inc. (TLC), was founded on the
hypothesis to work collaboratively across and within sectors based on practice and theory will advance positive social change for girls. To meet the mission of sustainable educational development for girls, TLC initiated an evidence-based approach into the design and delivery of its programs. Informed by scholarly research, Waldman put forward the theory to provide advantage to a government‘s social change policy, a nongovernmental program needed to integrate empirical studies and theory with policy. A collaborative model was selected to build partnerships with public managers who aspired to piece together meaningful social change for girl children. Cross Sector Collaboration with Civil Society
Waldman reasoned that policy collaboration based in both practice and theory would
meet local and national needs of any marginalized population TLC wanted to serve. After much thought, TLC programs focused on sustainable educational development opportunities for girls. This goal had widespread support from public managers who looked for expertise to implement programs that addressed complex social issues. Although many socio-economic issues

necessitate the education of public officials, due to the United Nations global focus on
HIV/AIDS prevention, educational training of public managers on HIV/AIDS prevention as a
human right was not necessary. Governments were already informed and responsible
signatories of international human rights treaties and global social development targets such as
UNCHR International Guidelines on HIV/AIDS and Human Rights (2006) and the Millennium
Development Goals, (Goal 6 2000).
Still, how does civil society motivate public managers who are charged with the
implementation of national social policy to advocate on an issue as complex as girl children
social development? Waldman and Meador‘s objective was to induce public managers to
include a gender justice and human rights tactic when implementing public health policy. Public
managers already had difficulty with carrying out social policies due to the lack of financial
resources. To overcome this challenge, TLC trained public administrators to accept the
advantage of gaining additional resources from working with a nongovernmental organization
Social Change and Policy Implementation
To Love Children acquired knowledge to empower girls from best practices along with
evidence-based research. This process cultivated relationships with public managers who were
ready to champion girl empowerment thereby ensuring a social justice policy which centered on
gendered equality. Waldman and Meador‘s specific strategy was to take account of community
based organizations and the private sector. However, targeting local groups necessitated more
than understanding best practices and the qualities of effective programs and policies.
Waldman and Meador recognized the importance to improve intercultural
communication skills to create lasting and meaningful policy dialogue. This awareness affected
