General secretary, Treatment Action Campaign

Vuyiseka Dubula has spent her career working in public health policy, social and youth development and human rights law.

Since then, she has worked with the National Association of People Living With HIV/Aids and Medicines sans Frontiers, returning to the TAC as general secretary last year. "There are so many inequalities in our society,� says the 31-year-old, who received her BA in social health and social services from Unisa in 2008, "especially among poor people. From my own experience of living with HIV/Aids I know that the right of access to healthcare doesn't come easily, especially if you are poor and don't have money.� � Eamon Allan
