AVAC's PxROAR program trains US and European advocates in biomedical HIV prevention research education and advocacy through mentorship, peer support, networking opportunities and technical and financial support.
The PxROAR program has two goals: to educate its members in HIV prevention research science, implementation and advocacy; and to provide a platform for specific prevention research and implementation advocacy campaigns. There are two cadres of PxROAR advocates: one based in the US and one based in Europe. Both groups represent the range of HIV-affected communities.
In Europe and the US, the PxROAR program seeks to to expand members’ capacity to engage in HIV prevention research science, implementation and advocacy; to contribute to advocacy for research, development and implementation of new HIV preventions, including AIDS vaccines, microbicides, PrEP, and treatment as prevention; to track FDA and EMA licensing processes; and advocate for sustained funding to key research entities including the US National Institutes of Health and European-based research institutes funded through the EU’s Financial Framework 2014-2020 and Horizon 2020.
