 Before joining UWC in May 2010, Sakhumzi Mfecane was a PhD fellow at Wits Institute for Social and Economic Research (WISER). Sakhumzi’s research interest for the past 11 years has centered on men, masculinities and HIV/AIDS.  He has pursued this interest throughout his post graduate studies and as a researcher for Perinatal HIV Research Unit (PHRU), Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) and Centre for AIDS Development Research and Evaluation (CADRE). His PhD research, which he obtained in 2010, focused on constructions of masculinity among men living with HIV.  Currently Sakhumzi is working on a few chapters to be published in academic journals and later converted into a book, based on his PhD research. He lectures in Medical Anthropology and Gender, both at undergraduate and post-graduate levels. He is also a coordinator for Post-Graduate studies in Anthropology and Sociology.
