Treatment Advocacy and Literacy Campaign (TALC) - 2012 Fellow

Clever Chilende joined Treatment Advocacy and Literacy Campaign (TALC) as a volunteer in 2008. TALC is member organization that was founded in 2005 to lobby for equitable and sustainable access to affordable, quality HIV treatment, care and support in Zambia. During his time at TALC, he coordinated a project in budget monitoring and expenditure tracking in the health sector, and worked to increase community participation in the health budgeting process.

He holds a bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of Zambia and trained as banker at the Finance Bank Training Institute of Zambia. Clever spent many years in banking. Thereafter, he worked as a private business consultant, through which he developed an interest in advocacy. In the past several years, Chilende has worked on campaigns to end ARV shortages in Lusaka and to establish an ART center in Chazanga, a densely populated and rural area in Zambia’s Eastern Province. One of his passions is making friends.
