About the Program
The goal of AVAC’s Advocacy Fellows program is to expand the capacity of advocates and organizations to monitor, support and help shape biomedical HIV prevention research and implementation of proven interventions worldwide. The program is guided by AVAC’s conviction that effective and sustainable advocacy grows out of work that reflects organizational and individual interests, priorities and partnerships.

The Advocacy Fellows program provides support to emerging and mid-career advocates to design and implement advocacy projects focused on biomedical HIV prevention research and implementation activities in their countries and communities. These projects are designed to addresses locally identified gaps and priorities. Fellows receive training, full-time financial support and technical assistance to plan and implement a targeted one-year project within host organizations working in HIV/AIDS and/or advocacy. Host organizations are critical partners in the program and Fellows projects can be an opportunity for an organization to further develop its own work in this field.

The Fellows program focuses on low- and middle-income countries where clinical research on HIV vaccines, microbicides, multi-purpose prevention technologies, pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and cure is planned or ongoing and/or where there is implementation or plans for rollout for newer proven interventions such as voluntary medical male circumcision, PrEP, early treatment, high impact combination prevention packages that combine biomedical strategies for population impact, and where the links between sexual and reproductive health and HIV risk for women are being studied.
