EH!WOZA and its various programmes engage adolescents and young adults from areas with high rates of HIV and TB (and recently COVID-19) to participate in workshops with high-impact biomedical research. Participants are invited to reflect on the individual, social, and emotional cost of disease through creative workshops providing technical skills, equipment, and conceptual guidance, and leading to the production of documentaries, poetry, and music videos. Media is disseminated digitally, through local news partnerships and in-person screenings.
