Project Description

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 improve their translation skills through the development of PEPFAR technical documentation in French or Portuguese.
