Madison has been actively involved in the global AIDS response for several years, focusing his efforts through research and advocacy. In his research, Madison has examined the interaction of HIV structural drivers on disease incidence; the impact of PEPFAR's controversial ABC approach to HIV prevention on youth sexual behaviour; the inclusion of community-facility linkage activities in national health policies for the elimination of mother-to-child transmission of HIV; and the strength of bioethics framework systems in supporting ethically-sound clinical trials throughout Sub-Saharan Africa. His research has been presented at international conferences in Australia, South Africa, and throughout the United States.
In his advocacy work, Madison spent three years running a non-profit organisation that has worked in HIV prevention among marginalised populations in Cambodia and in AIDS-affected communities in Uganda by working in the intersection of education, healthcare, and microenterprise. He also worked to mobilise youth in Australia for the development of a global youth advocacy agenda to place adolescents and young people at the centre of the global AIDS response. While at UNICEF, Madison co-edited policy briefs on childhood vulnerability in Sub-Saharan Africa and assisted in the development of the All In! to #EndAdolescentAIDS Assessment Tool, a new data set on the HIV treatment cascade among adolescents.
Madison graduated Summa Cum Laude & Valedictorian from Rutgers University and is currently studying for a Master of Science (MSc) in Evidence-Based Social Intervention & Policy Evaluation. He aims to continue his work in addressing the AIDS epidemic among adolescents in East & Southern Africa by studying the effects of macroeconomic policies on access to HIV services.
