Eh!woza operates at the intersection of science communication, youth advocacy, community engagement, and skills development to merge the biomedicine of disease with its social impact.
Our various programmes recruit high school students and young adults from areas with high rates of HIV and TB to practical workshops that engage participants with high-impact local biomedical research. Equipped with accurate information, beneficiaries are enrolled in creative workshops that provide technical skills, equipment, and conceptual guidance, to produce documentaries, music, poetry and music videos that reflect the individual, social, and emotional cost of disease. Media is disseminated to conscientise the public on issues of health and disease.
We enlist beneficiaries as active partners and facilitate access to accurate information while promoting honest conversations, storytelling, and representation of health and disease. Over the long term, we aim to encourage positive health-seeking behaviour, engender trust, and ultimately decrease stigma.
