Why I want to work on HIV prevention advocacy in 2020

I am interested in working in HIV prevention advocacy because I recognize the ways in which HIV disproportionately affects adolescent and young women in my community. Although PrEP is available in public health facilities, most of my peers face tremendous challenges accessing prevention services and technologies. I aim to respond to the unique needs of AGYW by informing national PrEP targets, promoting the integration of SRH and HIV services, and combatting stigma amongst youth. As a young woman at high risk for developing HIV, I am committed to being part of the solution.
