Matilda’s perseverance in educating her own people about HIV/AIDS has encouraged them to learn about their HIV status, seek counselling and begin treatment if they test positive.
Matilda has been involved in HIV/AIDS awareness since 2006. She is a person living with HIV and has been on ART for more than 17 years. Matilda uses her story and expertise to educate women and men on the importance of sexual health and wellbeing.
Part of her work includes assisting people to manage the physical and psychological challenges of living with HIV in remote communities.
