Chilufya joined Treatment Advocacy and Literacy Campaign in 2015 as a volunteer where she coordinated its ARV access program for the elderly and disabled. She used the Good Participatory Guidelines as a framework for advocacy for service delivery in health centers. She has worked in community development with a passion in research and advocacy for the marginalized. Her advocacy work also includes petitioning the government to establish viral load testing as a priority for all the people living with HIV. She is currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Development Studies at the University of Zambia.
Why I want to advocate for HIV prevention in 2016?
There is no time to wait. Zambia needs to empower women and young girls to have control of their lives through the use of PrEP. With PrEP we can reduce new infections in order to help reach the UNAIDS 90/90/90 targets. However, there is need for awareness among decision-makers, individuals and institutions to achieve this.
