Nahbila is currently, the Director with the Cameroon Association for the Protection and Education of the Child (CAPEC).
While at the University, I was a member of the Health Club we had as object to fight against AIDS in the University.
I have worked as a volunteer with a good number of national Non-Governmental Organizations wherein I held major leadership positions. I’ve been a community health educator, coordinator of a youth development center and HIV/AIDS project coordinator. I also headed a community animators association that uses theatre and songs to educate and sensitize the rural population on development and health issues, most of the plays/sketches that have been used though still to be published, are written and directed by me.
I am assisting in a youth focus approach in the fight against HIV/AIDS in Cameroon that uses a combined methodology of risks and vulnerability mapping approach to identify the risky sexual behaviors amongst adolescents. The resultant considered to be a situation analysis (baseline study) is then used in a ten step behavior change analysis that would seek to modify and improve upon the risky behaviors identified during the risk mapping. This is an approach that applies the full Participation of youths and with youths at the leadership; the program is yielding wonderful results in the community where it is currently going on.
I am also a trained peer educator and have participated in training organized by National Committee for the Fight against AIDS, GTZ Cameroon, Public Health Ministry, US Embassy TaskForce and I am trained in using ICT by various organisations
