Moses "Supercharger" Nsubuga

People in Need Agency - 2017 Fellow

Moses Supercharger is an activist, musician and a person living with HIV since 1994. He founded the “Stigmaless Band”, a group of children living with HIV who became advocates for healthy living. Through singing and dancing they raise funds to take care of themselves and their peers. Moses has his own radio program and organizes events to bring awareness to HIV, particularly drug resistance, and to defy stigma. His goal has been to see Ugandans access quality testing, treatment and adherence. He is now expanding his advocacy to include a cure for people living with HIV. He has also been involved in several studies such as the START and PASER trials and several others run by the Joint Clinical Research Center.

Why I want to advocate for HIV prevention in 2017:

I want to change the trend of treatment. Because of poor adherence interventions, some folks are struggling with HIV drug resistance, failing second line and not able to access third line treatment. The most recent draft of the Uganda guidelines has a provision for third-line treatment. Now we need to ensure that these recommendations are translated into reality. I also want to see full participation of community advocates in HIV cure research, especially in Uganda where a trial is ongoing.
