What inspires you to work in the HIV field?

It is inspiring to have the opportunity to see the lives of people living with HIV improve because of the health programmes, research and community empowerment that we do.

What are your goals as an IAS change maker?

As an IAS change maker, I aspire to learn and develop programmes that strike a balance between biomedical interventions and social determinants of HIV care.
