Joyce Ouma

National Empowerment Network of People Living with HIV/AIDS in Kenya

Joyce is a young woman living openly with HIV. Driven by passion and experience, she has been part of the HIV response for nearly five years. Joyce represents the interests of young people at the Country Coordinating Mechanism of the Global Fund and the communities’ delegation to the board of the Global Fund. In 2016, Joyce accompanied the First Lady of Kenya H.E. Margaret Kenyatta to the 17th Organization of African First Ladies against HIV and AIDS (OAFLA) to advocate for the particular interests of Kenyan youth in HIV prevention. Joyce joined Sauti Skika, a network of young people living with HIV in Kenya in 2016. Joyce received her Bachelor’s degree at Machakos University.

Why I Want to Work on HIV Prevention Advocacy in 2020

I believe young women need more choices in HIV prevention and am committed to advocating for the integration of SRH and HIV prevention technologies. Specifically, I will concentrate my fellowship on the research pipeline and product introduction around the dual pill and dapivirine ring.
