WHO WE ARE
AfNHi is an African led network of HIV prevention research advocates based in Africa borne out of a joint vision by African Advocates. AfNHi is seeking to fast-track the biomedical HIV prevention research agenda on the continent through local ownership, using indigenous strategies to enhance Africa’s contribution to the Global goals.
The network began as an extended exchange around the need to champion African led advocacy in biomedical HIV prevention research among colleagues including WACI Health, New HIV Vaccine and Microbicides Advocacy Society (NHVMAS) and individual advocates.
