Why I Want to Work on HIV Prevention Advocacy in 2020

I am interested in creating demand and ensuring access to PrEP for key populations. I understand the importance of engaging policymakers and decisionmakers in advocating for the proper rollout of PrEP in Malawi. I also aim to work with key populations to decrease stigma accessing services in public health facilities and drop-in centers.
