This July, World Pulse Managing Editor Corine Milano traveled to Zambia as an International Reporting Project Fellow to cover health issues from the epicenter of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. With one of the highest HIV infection rates in the worldâ€”14.3% of the adult populationâ€”the Zambian people face an uphill battle.
This series of interviews and firsthand accounts from World Pulse community members in Zambia reveals the strength of the countryâ€™s women, who are holding together families and communities through an enduring health crisis. They are taking the lead as heads of household, community activists, outspoken survivorsâ€”and even soap opera actresses. They are the voice of a changing Zambia.
