Not only did Humphrey Nabimanya’s parents both die of AIDS, but so did his surrogate father. And for a long time, the hugely popular TV host and peer educator believed he himself was HIV-positive.
In this edition of Africa in Progress, we speak with Nabimanya about life before and after his revelational medical test. Plus, we learn how he gets young Ugandans to talk openly about sex and HIV/AIDS. After all, youth in Africa are the among the most vulnerable to new infections. Yet the usual one-size-fits-all approach to HIV/AIDS education rarely reaches them.
