The research conducted by VAP and its partners Medical University of South Carolina targeting adolescent youth who fear stigmatization and discrimination by visiting conventional VCT testing sites was shortlisted for the 2018 ‘Best Partnership or collaboration Award’ that aligns with Global Goals number 17 under ‘Football and cutting edge-HIV Research’.VAP will be part of the shortlisters attending the award ceremony in New York where winners of each categories will be announced.
With the shortlisting of the award,VAP has launched a new department known as 'Research & Learn' which will be geared towards creating innovative ways of upgrading its programs.Currently 'Show Corruption the REDCARD' program is undergoing various programmatic upgrading that includes building a much stronger monitoring and valuation system that would gauge the impact of the program.
