I’ve worked as a Researcher at SECTION27 since 8 January 2014.
I run the Advice Office and the national campaign for Community Healthcare Workers calling for the recognition as an important workforce in the fight against HIV and TB.
I stick around because I believe in the cause and in empowering people to advocate for what is rightfully theirs.
A bit of my pre-SECTION27 background is that I am from Umlazi, South of Durban. I have a Bachelor of Social Science degree in Psychology and Anthropology. I also did a Master’s degree in Population Studies through the University of KwaZulu Natal. I worked for Maurice Webb Research Institute for a year as a Research Assistant. I have recently been appointed as the 2017 South African AVAC fellow, where I will be advocating for access to PReP for University students.
