Why I want to advocate for HIV prevention in 2017:

The main reason I am driven to work on HIV prevention advocacy in 2017 is to sensitize the public and raise awareness of the availability of different types of HIV prevention in Zimbabwe. Condoms have been the most high-profile method of prevention and it is time that key populations, especially sex workers, are made aware of other measures such as PrEP. It is time for sex workers to have the full knowledge of PrEP—what it is, how it works, who it’s for and how to access it. It is also time for our service providers to see things from a different perspective and be sensitized to a public health approach in serving sex workers.
