Subject: AVAC launches call for applications for 2012 Advocacy Fellowships
May 16, 2011
AVAC is pleased to announce the call for applications for the 2012 HIV
Prevention Research Advocacy Fellowship Program. This update provides
information on the Advocacy Fellowship program and details for an
upcoming informational call to be held on Wednesday, June 1.
The submission deadline for the Advocacy Fellowship applications is

The goal of AVACs HIV Prevention Research Advocacy Fellowship is to
expand the capacity of civil society advocates and organizations to
monitor, support and help shape biomedical HIV prevention research and
related implementation worldwide. The Advocacy Fellowship is guided by
the belief that effective and sustainable advocacy grows out of work
that reflects organizational and individual interests and priorities.
The Advocacy Fellowship provides support to emerging and mid-career
advocates in developing countries to design and implement advocacy
projects focused on biomedical HIV prevention research activities in
their countries and communities. The Advocacy Fellowship is primarily
focused on countries where biomedical prevention research is planned
or ongoing. Advocacy Fellows carry out their projects while based at
host organizations that are active partners in the Fellowship process.
HIV Prevention Research Advocacy Fellows are:
Emerging or mid-career community leaders and advocates interested in
building their skills in understanding and advocating around HIV
Individuals with some experience or education in the areas of HIV and
AIDS, public health, international development, women's rights,
communications and/or advocacy
Based in developing countries where biomedical HIV prevention clinical
research is planned or ongoing or medical male circumcision for HIV
prevention is being introduced
Able to collaborate with English-speaking mentors
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. The Fellowship
builds the capacity of both the Fellow and the respective host
organization in HIV prevention research advocacy.
