Challenge

Because HIV affects numerous aspects of life and society, our initiative provides multiple areas of support and services. Through partnering with community-based establishments in Zimbabwe, we work to supply prevention, counseling, and education resources, while increasing medical and nutritional support for AIDS patients. In addition, we focus on empowering families and individuals through support groups, child education programs, and income generation projects.

Solution

Though Voluntary Counseling and Testing Centers (VCTs), people in need receive counseling and medical assistance, anti-retroviral treatment, nutrition resources, and other forms of support in income generation projects, child education, clothing, etc

Long-Term Impact

The project helps to sustain programs in local VCTs, which service 2,000-3,000 people a year. These ground-based institutions facilitate discussion groups, education, and income generation projects to increase community HIV and public health support.
