The Chiva Youth Committee (CYC) is a vibrant and creative group of young people who are keen to get involved in a wide range of projects and campaigns. Since 2010, the CYC has been working alongside the Chiva staff team, Trustee Board and Steering Group to:

  • give a voice to children and young people living with HIV in the work of Chiva and in the public domain
  • tackle HIV stigma and support campaigns by working with the media, policy makers and the public

All CYC members are young people living with HIV. It has recently expanded to 20 members, including an elected chair and deputy chair. Committee members hold their roles for two or three years.

If one of your patients is interested in joining the CYC – register their interest here and we will notify them when recruitment opens.
