The Advocacy Fellows Program

Background Information: The Advocacy Fellows Program is designed to support emerging and mid-career advocates to design and implement creative, context-specific advocacy projects focused on HIV prevention research and implementation in their countries and communities. Advocacy Fellows carry out their projects while based at “Host Organisations” in their respective countries.

Advocacy Fellows design and execute activities to affect specific changes along the HIV prevention research to rollout continuum in their chosen contexts at the community, national or regional level. Fellows’ projects may also focus on “test and treat” or ARV treatment as prevention strategies, which are being implemented in many contexts.

Fellows receive training, financial support and technical assistance to plan and implement a targeted one-year project within host organizations focused on HIV/AIDS.
