Memory Makamba

Zimbabwe AIDS Prevention Project-University of Zimbabwe (ZAPP-UZ) - 2012 Fellow

Memory holds a Bsc in sociology from the University of Zimbabwe and a master’s degree in peace and governance from the Institute of Peace Leadership and Governance – Africa University. Her involvement in HIV preventions began 10 years back as she worked at University of Zimbabwe – University of California San Francisco (UZ-UCSF) Research Collaboration. She then joined the Zimbabwe AIDS Prevention Project-University of Zimbabwe (ZAPP-UZ) as a social scientist for a study aimed at developing an evidence-based multi-component community intervention for HIV positive children aimed at improving their physical and psychological well-being.

She is passionate about protecting the rights of ordinary women. Prior to becoming a Fellow, Memory worked at ZAPP-UZ as a research and documentation officer. In 2010, she attended the World AIDS Conference and was struck by the lack of advocacy for married women despite them bearing the brunt of the epidemic. She is keen on biomedical prevention strategies, particularly microbicides and vaccines because of the hope they offer to women.
