Mary Ann Torres, International Council of AIDS Service Organizations Mary Ann is a Lawyer from Venezuela with specialty in international health and human rights. In her hometown of Caracas, she taught a course on human rights at the Universidad Católica Andrés Bello.
She was awarded a scholarship to purse postgraduate legal studies in the United States. There, she concentrated her masters in international law and health. She was later given a scholarship to pursue another Masters at the University of Toronto, where she concentrated in women's rights and health. In both opportunities, she worked as a research assistant in international health and human rights.
She is currently the Senior Program Officer at the International Council of AIDS Service Organizations (ICASO), an international network of NGOs seeking to connect communities from around the world and represent their voices at policy-making forums on issues concerning vulnerability to HIV/AIDS, social development and human rights. She has conducted extensive community-based research, review and analysis of relevant laws, policies and practices and creation of evidence-based advocacy plans and agendas to respond to the needs of the communities. Because of her knowledge of the Latin American region, she currently serves as the advisor of the ICASO Latin American branch. This has given her the opportunity to establish working relationships with a diverse range of stakeholders in governmental and non-governmental settings, as well as regional, sub-regional, national and local levels.
She provides technical assistance to several organizations in the region. She has been particularly involved in capacity building programs on leadership, advocacy and monitoring initiatives, as well as programs and projects, especially around the implementation of international commitments related to HIV/AIDS (i.e., the UNGASS Declaration of Commitment and the Millennium Development Goals). She has also been intimately involved at several national, regional and international capacity building and training opportunities acting as a facilitator and trainer.
