Pangaea Global AIDS Foundation - Pangaea Zimbabwe Aid Trust (PZAT) - 2014 Fellow

Definate holds a BA Degree in Sociology and an MSc Degree in Strategic Management and from Africa University in Zimbabwe. Through her work on the Shaping the Health of Adolescents in Zimbabwe (SHAZ!) Project, she has developed extensive experience working with orphaned and vulnerable adolescent girls and young women living on the streets. She won the Young Women Investigator’s prize at the 2013 International AIDS Society Conference in Malaysia for her abstract on adolescents and gender based violence.

Fellowship Focus: Definate advocated for comprehensive HIV prevention options for young women and for their integration into sexual and reproductive health programs in Zimbabwe. She documented the perspectives of young women and pushed for consolidated national guidelines that reflect these needs. She also worked with researchers and civil society members to prepare for upcoming microbicide trial results and accelerate regulatory consideration if the results were positive.
