How could empirical research contribute to the composition of effective and sustainable health projects in the area of HIV-prevention?
Project description

The Mercator Fellowship on International Affairs annually sponsors 24 German-speaking young professionals and university graduates from all disciplines who are committed to improving the world of tomorrow. During the 13-month programme, Fellows work in two or three international organizations that are active worldwide – non-governmental or non-profit organizations, or business enterprises. The Fellows’ own practical questions serve as their project proposals and determine their workstations anywhere in the world. During her fellowship year, Mira will explore the role of empirical research in developing more effective HIV prevention programmes within international organisations and NGOs working in the field of HIV.
