A day in the life of Positive-Generation

ONE went behind the scenes to see what a normal day at the office was like at Positive-Generation (PG), the winner of this year’s Africa Award. PG uses advocacy to pressure government leaders to protect the safety and health of HIV-positive individuals in Cameroon. Learn more about the organization here.

Dr. Elat Jean Bosco, head of Cameroon’s National AIDS Control Committee, tells us about the government’s work to control and reduce the spread of HIV, as urged on by Positive-Generation and other CSOs.

Positive-Generation, founded as a student group, continues to work with student clubs at universities on promoting safe sex and educating about HIV.

Positive-Generation enlists volunteers to station themselves at hospitals and clinics in order to be a resource for patients as they navigate Cameroon’s health care system.

PG-Data Processing
Positive-Generation’s integrity and results depend on the integrity and analysis of the data collected through its Treatment Access Watch program.

Positive-Generation’s co-founder and executive director, Fogué Ledoux, talks about the importance of taking Cameroonian voices to leaders at the local, national and international levels.

PG-Market Scene
In addition to its advocacy efforts targeting the government, Positive-Generation’s members and volunteers actively engage in educating citizens about HIV, safe sex and other health concerns at local markets in Cameroon’s cities.

PG-Report Writing
To make the most of its data and analysis, Positive-Generation issues weekly reports on the state of Cameroon’s health care delivery.
