AVAC is thrilled to invite applications for the 2024 Advocacy Fellows Program. Fellows accepted into the program, will mark the 13th cohort of this program.
AVAC’s Advocacy Fellows Program expands and strengthens the capacity of civil society advocates and organizations to monitor, support and help shape HIV prevention research and rapid rollout of new effective interventions in low- and middle-income countries facing substantial HIV burdens.
