Challenge

The HIV/AIDS epidemic is raging in Zimbabwe. More than 2,000 people die weekly of the disease and 30% of those are girls aged 15-16. Furthermore, 25% of the country’s population is infected and 20% of the country's children have lost at least one parent to the disease. The HIV/AIDS Information Center in Kuwadzana will serve thousands of educators, health workers, and youth by providing them access to the center and its materials. Workshops will be offered and access to discounted female condoms.

Solution

The HIV/AIDS Information Center will be constructed within the office of Youth Ahead Zimbabwe (YAZ). The center will primarily provide brochures on HIV/AIDS and other STDs and hold workshops on sexual education and reproduction.

Long-Term Impact

Educators and health workers will be able to acquire literature. In some cases, counseling will be provided to those with HIV/AIDS. The center will also provide condoms at a discount. The center will be run by a team of volunteers.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
