ACCESS TO THE FIRST LADY DENIED


Prominent campaigner, Tendai Westerhoff says women living with HIV have been denied access to the First Lady.

“We have been denied access to the First Lady as women living with HIV. We have followed event where she has met with different women’s groups but on all those platforms she never spoke about women living with HIV or to take time to also hear our issues and lived experiences. She has done great work in cancer awareness but has never interacted with women living with HIV. Several other high profile people have done so, but when it comes to HIV and AIDS they shy away. I notice even the former First Ladies did not want to associate with women living with HIV or organizations of women living with HIV in Zimbabwe."
