Huffington Post: Challenging Innovators to Help Us Make DREAMS Come True
Deborah L. Birx, ambassador-at-large and U.S. global AIDS coordinator

“…[T]he DREAMS Partnership took a stand [toward preventing HIV infections and empowering women and girls] by issuing a call for innovative ideas as part of the DREAMS Innovation Challenge. … The Challenge builds on the important progress made through the DREAMS Partnership, which PEPFAR launched on World AIDS Day 2014. … The DREAMS Innovation Challenge seeks to build on this progress by driving innovative, sustainable solutions in six areas: 1) strengthening capacity of communities for service delivery, 2) keeping girls in secondary school, 3) linking men to health services, 4) supporting pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), 5) providing a bridge to employment, and 6) using data to increase impact. Over the past 13 years, we’ve made tremendous progress in the HIV/AIDS response. … We’re calling on innovators and thought-leaders — particularly women’s groups at the community level — to join us. Bring us your ideas and your solutions, which can help make this generation of adolescent girls and young women an AIDS-free generation” (2/17).
