Chamunorwa Mashoko

University of Zimbabwe-University of San Francisco Research Programme (UZ-UCSF) - 2012 Fellow

Chamu has close to a decade of HIV research experience and his personal vision is a poverty and HIV-free Africa. His involvement in research dates back to 2002 when he joined University of Zimbabwe–University of California San Francisco (UZ-UCSF) Research Collaboration as a community outreach worker. In 2007, working as a counselor in the HPTN 046 Nevirapine study (testing safety and effectiveness of daily NVP dose in infants), he was reminded of how much HIV/AIDS has a woman’s face, and was compelled to do something about it. He joined the Microbicides Trials Network’s VOICE study team to help champion the development of a prevention method women can have full control over. This past year, Chamu spent four months in New York as a Community Solutions Program fellow, a program of the US Department of State implemented by IREX.

Recently, Chamu recorded a song, "For You I Will," advocating combination prevention—particularly testing and voluntary medical male circumcision. Listen here. (Insert link.)
