Maryland: In Baltimore Visit, Young Zimbabwean Extols Lifesaving HIV Treatment
September 28, 2010
Tichaona Mudhobhi, a 20-year-old Zimbabwean, is crossing the United States on a six-week speaking tour sponsored by Catholic Relief Services. Near CRS' headquarters in downtown Baltimore, Mudhobhi recently met with 25 other HIV-positive youths to share their experiences living with the virus.
The summit, held at the University of Maryland School of Medicine (MSoM) and co-sponsored by CRS and Children's National Medical Center in Washington, included two attendees from Africa, but the majority were from Baltimore and other U.S. cities. The goal was to provide a forum for Africans and Americans to trade ideas about how HIV can be prevented and managed among the world's young people.
