Guests, staff and students attended the launch of the South African Voices HIV Museum located at the Howard College campus library.
The University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN) HIV and AIDS Programme has launched a satellite of the popular SA Voices HIV Museum.
Located in the EG Malherbe Library Foyer at Howard College campus, the HIV-friendly, free, educational hub for UKZN students and staff was launched on the eve of this year’s South African AIDS Conference on 12 June.
South African Voices documents a critical and defining chapter in our collective journey to overcome HIV in South Africa. The SA Voices HIV Museum exhibition was created and launched as a legacy project in July 2016 on the occasion of the 21st International AIDS Conference held in Durban. Located at eThekwini’s KwaMuhle Museum, this SA Voices flagship was a first for South Africa and continues to be a popular destination for both tourists and the South African public. To date over 18 000 people have visited South African Voices, 60% of whom are South African youth.
