From the Trenches, Advocates Share Their Prevention Priorities


In this episode we bring you two different conversations, each throwing a spotlight on different aspects of HIV prevention advocacy today.

AVAC’s Manju Chatani-Gada talks with three advocates who attended AVAC’s African Advocacy Partners’ Forum in Johannesburg. Seasoned and new advocates came together to look at prevention priorities from every angle.

In this discussion you’ll hear how the forum brought key issues into focus and how these advocates are sharpening their strategies.

Then we turn to a global effort to accelerate prevention.

Christine Stegling, the head of the UK-based International HIV/AIDS Alliance joins us to talk about a new initiative by two UN agencies to escalate and maximize HIV prevention in 25 countries with the biggest number of new diagnoses. Dubbed the Global HIV Prevention Coalition, we talk with Christine about how to know if it’s living up to its name?
