An advocacy initiative in partnership with the Children’s Radio Foundation to enable young people to actively shape HIV programmes and investment priorities that respond to their specific needs.
The #IASYouthVoices multimedia campaign will highlight the stories and perspectives of youth who are speaking out about their experiences and needs in the HIV response. Join us! Follow #IASYouthVoices on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and spread the word.
Nolusindiso, 24, shares her story of surviving rape, dropping out of school, falling pregnant, and receiving a positive HIV diagnosis. Every month she walks 8km to the Nolungile clinic where she receives her HIV treatment and is supported and encouraged to live a full life.
Her story is part of an International Aids Society campaign, in which young people tell their own stories and have the opportunity to talk back to the decision-makers at an International AIDS Conference in Durban.
“It’s important for young people to speak out because when you keep things inside, that is when it kills you.”
