VIEW PROJECT


The MAC AIDS Leadership Initiative trains fellows from South Africa in HIV/AIDS prevention at the HIV Center for Clinical and Behavioral Studies at the New York State Psychiatric Institute (NYSPI) and Columbia University. The initiative is a 12-month training program designed to cultivate new leaders in HIV/AIDS prevention who will make a major contribution to advocacy and programming at the local, regional, or national levels within South Africa. This web-based environment is designed to help the program meet its objectives of training these emerging leaders on reducing the spread of HIV and the impact of AIDS by addressing the role of gender inequality.

The MAC AIDS Fund Leadership Initiative project was developed in partnership with the HIV Center for Clinical and Behavioral Studies at NYSPI and Columbia University. The UCLA Program in Global Health was also a collaborator. The project was funded by the MAC AIDS Fund.

The MAC AIDS Fund Leadership Initiative is a Online Learning Initiative project.
