Nonceba Ciya

Nonceba Ciya is working as an interventionist on Project Khanya, a hybrid effectiveness-implementation trial for ART adherence and substance use in HIV care in South Africa. Previously, Nonceba worked as an interventionist at the Psychiatry and Mental Health Department at the University of Cape Town on a trauma study focused on developing a coping intervention to improve traumatic stress and HIV care engagement among South African women with sexual trauma histories. She has also worked on various research projects with Stellenbosch University's Psychology Department as a data collector and research assistant. She is passionate about working on projects that seek to help individuals infected with HIV better mentally and emotionally cope with their diagnosis. Through these programs she hopes to help individuals develop life skills that can be adapted to their community setting and that can transfer to their peers to encourage better ART adherence.
