Accelerating Social Change

2017 | Alis Okonji

Alis Okonji, a Red Spice, is keen on teenage issues. Orphaned by HIV at a tender age and loosing their last born to the HIV scourge, she has bared the brunt of stigmatization. She grew up in various homes but owes it to her grand parents who had to shoulder her orphanhood. She quips, “HIV is not a killer disease, stigma is.” She initiated Unstigmatize to create awareness on how stigma is the killer and not HIV.
