After gaining insight into HIV/AIDS through his parents, who were HIV Positive, and gaining education through various organizations by working with young people in addressing youth SRHR needs, Humphrey Nabimanya, 24, began hosting a Youth Talk Show on NBS TV. This addressed issues such as sexuality, entrepreneurship and life skills. Growing up with guardians that were HIV positive, Humphrey had struggled with discrimination at school; however he soon turned this round by deciding to educate his classmates about HIV/ AIDS.
