About the Program
The Voices in Health program was launched in Kenya in 2003; a time when around 700 people were dying as a result of HIV complications every day. Since then, hundreds of journalists have been trained to report responsibly about HIV and Aids issues, with a particular focus on making the science accessible while dispelling myths and reducing stigma.

Recently some people called me to enquire about her wellbeing. They wanted to pay for her school fees and get her back to school. I would like to do a follow up story on her after she is back in school, and now I can!"
"I am confident enough to call myself a journalist now"
