Bathabile Nyathi

The Center for Sexual Health and HIV/AIDS Research - Ziimbabwe (CeSHHAR Zimbabwe) - 2017 Fellow

Bathabile is currently a coordinator at the National Sex Work Programme and a sex worker as well. She started doing voluntary work at CeSHHAR Zimbabwe in 2011 as a peer educator and in 2014 she was employed as an outreach worker. She also co-chairs the Women Against All Forms of Discrimination Association. She is active in programs that concern sex workers and HIV prevention and passionate about this work. She is a PrEP champion.

Why I want to advocate for HIV prevention in 2017:

I started selling sex as an adolescent. I have since observed that when young women and adolescent girls begin to sell sex most of them initially are HIV negative. However, within 5 years they become HIV positive. It is my desire to advocate for HIV prevention and I really believe that PrEP would reduce the spread of HIV among adolescent girls, young women and sex workers.
