Want to help prevent new HIV infections, save lives, and accelerate progress toward ending AIDS as a public health threat? The Office of the U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator and Health Diplomacy leads implementation of the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). PEPFAR is the U.S. government initiative to help save the lives of those living with and affected by HIV/AIDS around the world. We are using data to do the right things, in the right places, right now, and in the right way.
The Office of the U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator and Health Diplomacy seeks motivated students who would like to apply their data analytic skills to real world problems and while developing their ability to communicate data driven stories.
These VSFS participants will work closely with PEPFAR staff that are charged with managing PEPFAR’s monitoring evaluation and reporting indicators. Take this opportunity to explore a large and growing time series data set that records the work of one of the greatest public health responses in history.

• An interest in quantitative data analysis using PEPFAR’s program indicators
• Proficiency with at least one statistical computing software package (e.g. R, Stata, SAS, SPSS) required
