International AIDS Vaccine Initiative (IAVI)

In this five-minute video, Vuyiseka Dubula-Majola – director at Stellenbosch University’s Africa Centre for HIV/AIDS, who is well recognized for her activism to ensure affordable access to health services for people living with HIV – gives her perspective on what it will take for Africa to put up a notable fight against what is being termed by experts as a looming resurgence of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. On 10 December 2018, Ms. Dubula-Majola was awarded the Franco-German Prize for Human Rights and the Rule of Law for the year 2018. This award recognises her lifelong commitment to helping HIV positive people, especially women.
