Nomfundo Eland

Treatment Action Campaign (TAC) - 2010 Fellow

Nono is the National Coordinator for the Women’s Rights Campaign at the Treatment Action Campaign (TAC) in South Africa. She has extensive experience in issues around sexual and reproductive health, health care, and has special interest in gender-based violence, particularly violence against women. Nono is raising her son, Warona and his nephews to respect women and to see violence of any kind as a crime. Her dream is to see them understand issues of gender and sexuality, and hopes that the future will see more men understand and appreciate this more. She is also a strong advocate for ensuring access to affordable interventions for women in developing countries, for instance access to HPV vaccines and different HIV prevention options.

Fellowship Focus: Nono brought her extensive community organizing experience to projects related to South African community engagement with key prevention research advocacy topics including male circumcision, PrEP, clinical trials conduct, microbicides and other issues. Her project re-energized advocacy around HIV prevention in a feminized epidemic in South Africa and engaged national stakeholders around HIV prevention research.
