About PrEP4All: 

PrEP4All is a community-based, patient-led activist organization aimed at increasing access to HIV prevention. Founded in 2018, we work to ensure that the most vulnerable individuals can access HIV prevention and treatment regardless of their race, gender, socioeconomic status, or geographic location. By working with community members, public health experts, and government officials, we craft rigorous policy solutions and pressure the federal government to ensure that everyone gets the HIV care they need, with the goal of reducing new HIV infections in the United States to zero.

In 2020, PrEP4All expanded its work to include access to COVID-19 vaccines and treatments.


Job Description:

Strong candidates will have a deep knowledge of various government bodies including Congress, HHS, CDC, NIH, and PTO and experience successfully influencing decisions across these agencies. Experience analyzing public health data and synthesizing findings in cohesive policy reports is a must. Candidates should be self-motivated, intellectually curious, and passionate about increasing access to medical technology.

Qualifications:

  • 3+ years of experience working in public health policy advocacy 
  • Strong track record of providing advice to and influencing senior policymakers
  • Deep knowledge of the federal political landscape as it pertains to public health
  • Knowledge of the access to medicines movement and relevant policy issues; understanding of legal issues like intellectual property is a plus
