Martha Tholanah

I am a Zimbabwean feminist openly living with HIV. I work to overcome sexism and make women living with HIV, young women and LBT women more visible in a male-dominated political and social landscape. I am passionate about women’s rights; access to HIV related treatment, disability rights, and functional health systems. A trained family therapy counsellor, qualified in medical rehabilitation, I established and headed both the health programme at Gays and Lesbians of Zimbabwe (GALZ) and the Network of Zimbabwean Positive Women (NZPW+).
