gyca logoGYCA Announces Call for Regional Focal Point Applications in 5 Regions!

GYCA, a program of the Public Health Institute (www.phi.org), is a global
network of more than 8,000 young leaders and adult allies who are changing
the face of the youth HIV movement. Based in New York, GYCA is represented
in every region of the world by 12 Regional Focal Points. GYCA recognizes
the power and potential of young leaders as the best force to address HIV
and AIDS in their communities, and works to empower them with knowledge,
skills, resources, and opportunities they need to scale up their
initiatives.

The Global Youth Coalition on HIV/AIDS is excited to announce that it has opened the application process for 2014-2016 Regional Focal Points!.  GYCA is accepting applications from young people who work in the youth HIV
movement in the following regions:

– Asia Pacific
– Caribbean
– Middle East & North Africa
– North America
– Western Europe

*Be a part of the movement!*

GYCA’s Regional Focal Point Program prepares young leaders working in the
HIV response to be pro-active and effective agents of change. Regional
Focal Points are GYCA’s eyes and ears in every region of the world. They
create a bridge that links grassroots activism and action with global
advocacy, helping to usher young people’s voices through the corridors of
power.

The voices of young people are central to ensuring a strong global HIV
response. Young people are disproportionately affected by HIV; every year,
young people represent more than 40% of all new HIV infections. As the
world meets to establish the post-2015 development agenda, GYCA is
committed to ensuring that young people play a role in that
decision-making.

GYCA Regional Focal Points are critical partners in the youth HIV movement.
They play a key role in determining GYCA’s strategic direction in the
evolving global HIV response, helping GYCA ensure that it is truly led by
the young people for whom, and with whom, we work. Through GYCA, these
young leaders have the opportunity to change the way the world looks at
young people.
