A founding and current partner of the VARG, AVAC works to accelerate the ethical development and global delivery of HIV prevention tools as part of a comprehensive and integrated response to the epidemic. Through education, policy analysis, advocacy and a network of global collaborations, we mobilize and support efforts to:


  • DELIVER proven HIV prevention tools for immediate impact
  • DEMONSTRATE and roll out new HIV prevention options.
  • DEVELOP long-term solutions needed to end the epidemic.
