HER Voice is part of the Global Fund’s HER – HIV Epidemic Response – initiative, which aims to reduce the number of new HIV infections among adolescent girls and young women by 58 percent in 13 African countries over the next five years.
In order to adequately address the needs of adolescent girls and young women, their thoughts, ideas and concerns must be central to policymaking, and the design and implementation of HIV programs. HER Voice works to facilitate the sharing of ideas by adolescent girls and young women at Global Fund forums by helping them to overcome logistical, administrative and language barriers to taking part.
To amplify the initiative across adolescent girls’ and young women’s groups and networks in HER focus countries, a number of HER Voice Ambassadors across the 13 countries have signed on to support.
