The Towards an HIV Cure initiative of the Sociedad Internacional de SIDA (IAS), En colaboración con AVAC, is organizing an Advocacy-for-Cure Academy in Botswana on 29 April – 1 May 2019.

  • Develop translational tools to disseminate information to the wider community, including policy makers, the media and programme managers.
  • Create opportunities to interact with leading researchers and advocates in the field with a view to expanding the network of advocates working in HIV cure.

The academy is specifically targeted at advocates currently working in the HIV field in resource-limited settings and who are interested in strengthening their HIV cure-related advocacy or engagement. The selection committee will take into account the candidates’ experience, their motivation to work in the HIV cure field, and their potential to apply the knowledge gained at the academy in their work.

All applicants will be notified of the status of their application by early March 2019.
