    "The event is done to enhance disclosure amongst people living with HIV/AIDS so that they don't look down upon themselves but consider themselves at the same level with other people. Every member is free to partake in the district competitions," said Nguruve.
    Nguruve said participants during the competitions will be all people living with HIV in the district who will be willing to take part in the competitions.
    He said this year will be the fifth year since they started holding such an event. He added that from amongst the participants, there will be voted Miss Chirumanzu HIV and Mr Chirumanzu HIV.
