In 2008, the HIV/AIDS and Local Government Research Network was renamed the HIV/AIDS and Local Government Learning Network (Halogen) to denote a shift in approach and participants. The approach now involves hosting four learning events per annum, which are open to Halogen members (mainly organisations with a research interest in HIV/AIDS and local government, but also involved in programmatic and/or strategic support, as well as the dplg - recently renamed the Department for Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs - and SALGA), municipal practitioners and other relevant experts (depending on the theme). Since its inception in 2006, Isandla Institute acts as the coordinator of the network.
