Fellowship Focus
Lepheana used the power of film to advocate and create demand for VMMC and to facilitate HIV education in Lesotho. He specifically focused on the issue of integration of VMMC and traditional circumcision and initiated important conversations to influence national VMMC policy and programming. He established an important civil society coalition that has continued to advocate for issues surrounding health and human rights in Lesotho.

In Their Own Words
As an HIV educator and filmmaker, I can use the power of film to advocate for VMMC so as to effectively create demand and facilitate HIV education.
