The 4YouthByYouth is seeking applications for its Adolescent Engagement in HIV Research in Africa.
Adolescents across Africa are engaging in HIV research in innovative ways, setting a new standard for meaningful research engagement. Youth have been involved in the design, implementation, and dissemination of research findings in sub-Saharan HIV research.
With the support of the Adolescent HIV Prevention and Treatment Implementation Science Alliance, several adolescent networks and platforms have emerged in the past several years.
In partnership with AHISA and sister organizations, they propose a crowdsourcing open call.
Crowdsourcing has a group of individuals attempt to solve a problem and then share solutions with the public.
Utilize This Offer
The purpose of this crowdsourcing open call is to solicit creative ways that adolescents (14-24 years old) have participated in HIV research studies in Africa.
The submissions to this open call will be used to inform research and help develop a manuscript on the same topic.
Anyone who has been involved in youth (14-24 years old) engagement in HIV research in Africa can participate.
All finalists will receive at least 250 USD as a prize. Prizes will only be given to adolescents.
The total amount and distribution of prizes will be decided by the steering committee.
Selected finalists will be involved in co-creating the manuscript as co-authors. All those who have a mean score of 7/10 or greater will receive a commendation.
If the language of submission is not English or French, a translated version of the submission will also be required.
Deadline: 31 January 2021.
