Nadia Mutisi is a summer intern at the O’Neill Institute.
Mutisi is interested in sexual and reproductive health and believes in the power of advocacy to initiate policy reform.
Since 2019, she has worked voluntarily with an organisation known as SayWhat whose aim is to ensure that students have access to public health services as well as that their sexual and reproductive rights are recognised.
A major proponent of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) goals, Mutisi has spoken at the ECOSOC Youth Forum in 2022, submitted recommendations with other youth to the Internet Governance Forum in 2021, and has moderated roundtables between Zimbabwe’s youth and parliament regarding topics, such as gender-based violence and health rights. In 2022, she was also selected by the Global Fund for Children as a Sparkfund Youth Panelist. Furthermore, Mutisi contributes to the realization of gender equality and quality education in Southern Africa through her work as a regional Web For Life girl advocate.
