Paul Sixpence

Centre Stage Media Arts Foundation - 2015 Fellow

Paul Sixpence is the Coordinator of HIV/AIDS and Human Rights Advocacy Projects at Centre Stage Media Arts Foundation in Bulawayo. His current work centers on the use of media as an advocacy tool to push for policy support around new HIV prevention science. Specifically, his work at Centre Stage calls for the availing of more resources by the Government of Zimbabwe and international partner organizations and donors for demonstration studies and rapid roll-out of biomedical prevention interventions through the public health system. Paul’s past work includes adolescent sexual and reproductive health education and rights advocacy for key populations. He holds an undergraduate degree in media studies from the National University of Science and Technology in Zimbabwe and a master’s degree in Human Rights from the Central European University in Hungary.

Prevention Gaps and Needs — My view for 2015
I am inspired and encouraged by results from TDF2 and Partners PrEP clinical trial results, which both exhibited high efficacy results of above 80 percent when taken correctly by men and women in Southern and Eastern Africa. Given that we know PrEP works, Zimbabwe needs regulatory approval, demonstration projects to show how best to implement PrEP and the prioritization of PrEP as an HIV prevention option for key populations.
