Deadline: 2nd of October, 2023

AVAC is excited to announce the call for applications for the 2024 Advocacy Fellows Program. Fellows admitted into the program will be the program’s 13th cohort.

Fellows receive comprehensive training, financial backing, and technical assistance to strategize and execute a targeted 18-month project hosted by an organization within their country.

  • Individuals with experience or education in HIV or public health, or in advocacy for key populations (e.g., sex workers, LGBTQIA+ individuals, pregnant individuals, people who use drugs) or for social and economic justice.
  • Based in low- and middle-income countries with substantial HIV burdens and ongoing HIV prevention research or introduction of new interventions.
  • Please note that for 2024 fellowships, priority focus lies in Eastern and Southern Africa.
