Fellowship at UNAIDS Special Youth Programme

The UNAIDS Special Youth Programme seeks to recruit young people aged 20-24 from developing countries with some programme experience in HIV related issues to join UNAIDS for a 9-month remunerated fellowship. The fellowship is divided into two sections: an initial fellowship in UNAIDS Geneva, followed – upon satisfactory performance - by a continued fellowship in the UNAIDS country office (UCO) in the fellow’s country of origin.
The programme seeks to achieve the following objectives:
  • To create opportunities at appropriate levels of the organization to engage youth in policy
    development and programming;
  • To help build the capacity of young people and strengthen their leadership skills to contribute to the AIDS response, especially at the country level;
  • To sensitize both the young people and UNAIDS staff on various modalities of working
    together to address issues related to HIV, particularly youth concerns, gender, GIPA and
    human rights.
